Dapper Dude Shorts


0-3m – Age 8

MBJM Dapper Dude Shorts are perfect for the dude or dude-ess in your life!

Slim fitting, but comfortable and stylish but modest, they have two lengths – long’ which is designed to sit below the knee, almost like cropped trousers, and ‘short’ which is designed to sit around or just above the knee. Both lengths are also designed to look good rolled up, giving you a further two lengths. You can choose from hip pockets, back pockets and criss cross side pockets. They can be made with a buttonhole elastic waistband and a faux or zip fly, or an elasticated yoga waist. There are also twisted and straight leg options.



The pattern is best suited for intermediate sewers, but there are also suggestions for enthusiastic beginners.

An overlocker/serger will create a neater, more professional finish, however I have also included instructions for using a regular sewing machine.

The pattern was specifically designed to be made using woven fabrics, but knit (stretch) fabrics can also be used for a more relaxed finish.

As with all MBJM sewing patterns, you are welcome to sell items made using this pattern.

This is an instant download PDF, not a finished item. Due to the digital nature of PDF patterns, no refund can be given if purchased in error.

The pattern has been created in layers which means that if you open it using adobe reader you can choose just the sizes (layers) you wish to print).
