KCWC Day 3 - Quick Change Trousers

So here we are on day 3 of the Kids Clothing Week Challenge, and I need a little break from sewing. Sleep sounds so very appealing this evening... But before I go, I'm sharing the two pairs of reversible shorts that I finished today for my littlest man, Mr. B. 

 

Pattern: Quick Change Trousers from Anna Maria Horner's book, Handmade Beginnings.

I modified the pattern by shortening it, adding piping down the sides of the legs, and adding vintage buttons and twill tape loops to hold up the fold and reveal the lining fabric. 

Fabric: Bears in Woods in sea from the Get Together collection by David Walker for Free Spirit, and So Sophie in brown by My Mind's Eye for Riley Blake Designs.

 

Pattern: Also the Quick Change Trousers from Anna Maria Horner's book, Handmade Beginnings modified by shortening, and adding vintage buttons and handmade loops to hold up the fold and reveal the lining fabric. 

Fabric: Cotton woven checks in red, blue and purple. Designer unknown, but recently purchased at Joann's.

So Mr. B seems to prefer the check numbers at the moment, but I think I like the bears best. Which do you prefer?

I love these pants you've made. I wish I'd run across that pattern when my little guy was smaller, he's now a 3T. Does Handmade Beginnings have stuff for girls? I suppose these pants would work depending upon the fabrics chosen. I love, love, love the bear fabric you used!
