Anyone know of a good pattern for wide, roomy pants for babies and toddlers? I have two chubby babes (6 mths and 2 years). It seems like ALL the baby/toddler pants in stores (especially BabyGap, Old Navy, etc...) are slim fitting. I would like to make some roomy, comfy, cotton pants for them that actually fit around their chubby legs and little buddha bellies!!

Thanks in advance!!

I am pretty sure the Quick Sew patterns fit over cloth diapers so i would also assume they fit our little chunky monkeys. Lily never wears anything for pants so i should start seeking this info myself.

I think Heather meant 'Kwik Sew' patterns. They do have the reputation for being roomy. Burda is another good pattern line to check out.

I have a Burda pattern for 2 seam pants that I use alll the time. Great fit over CDs and nice and baggy on my PL'ed boys. The Kwik Sew pattern in the baby book seems to be the same way.

:LOL KNew someone would ask... I just checked and can't find the pattern envelope, so it may not actually be burda *blush*... but the number is 4791. However, I remembered the other, similar pattern that works just as well. It is Butterick 6030. hth

Thanks for the info.! I actually ordered a New Look (for Kids) pattern 6175 last night and I'm hoping it works out! I'm brand new to sewing, so this is all new to me! I also found some Kwik Sew patterns, but ended up not ordering one... but not for any particular reason. I just found A LOT of other baby/toddler pants patterns on www.sewingpatterns.com and just orderd a few that I liked.

I also really liked a lot of the Burda patterns. I ordered one for my daughter!

Just looked at the Kwik Sew patterns again and found #2918 and it looks perfect! Darn, wish I had ordered it!!! Maybe I'll order it if my other ones don't work out!

Hopefully someone will know what I'm talking about here :LOL There is a free pattern / directions somewhere for using 3 fat quarters and sewing them in to pants for babies. My links are a total messand I printed it out at one point so I may not even have the link at all anymore. Anyone have a clue what i'm talking about?

Is this it? Scroll down to the bottom. It's pants made from 3 rectangles.

YES! Maybe that would be something to try while waiting for the pattern to get to you.

The rectangle pants have been on my list to try forever, they look so cool.

Seems like they end up huge, but I could be off. Wouldn't the rise be around 22-24"??? Not that it would be hard to adjust, just wondering.

No, you are right, they must have a high rise. Definitely double-check rise and inseam measurements before proceeding.

I saw on-line (but can't find it now) someone had made baggy pants for their little one out of an old t-shirt. I tried it and loved it. Just cut the t-shirt at the arm pits and cut a V at the bottom for the legs. (ya, you might want to measure you babe's in-seam length) Sew up the V and add an elastic for the waist and your done! They seem so comfy
