|Pattern Description: |
From the craftsy site: Trainers that look and fit like big kid undies!
Pattern also features an optional faux fly.
It has some hidden soaker layers to help with accidents.
Sizes range from 6-9 months to 8 yrs. (0-4X) I made a size 2x and my son wears a 4T.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes it did. Love the faux fly as well.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes, the instructions are easy to follow, except you have to remember that the faux fly instructions are at the end. So you have to jump around to the end, then back to the middle. Not an issue, except you have to remember to go to the end if you choose to put in the faux fly.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I :heart: the faux fly, although I've made it without as well. (I used scraps from making my son's pjs, so I didn't always have enough for the small faux fly). You can finish the waistband so that there is no seam showing. But the seams will always be there for the leg bands.
Since you can also use these to make regular underwear, I wish it had instructions for a real fly as well as the faux fly.
Cotton Interlock and cotton jersey. I used scraps left over from some pj's that I made for him.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes - I've made 4 and have a few more cut out and ready to go.
I decided to make some trainers to help my son with potty training. Diapers keep them too dry, so I'm hoping that by feeling wet that he'll start to want to potty train. I just put in a couple of layers of absorbent material to help with accidents, but not too much so that he would still feel wet when he pees. Overall, these are just too cute on. If you want to make some trainers, then this pattern is a good one.
