    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Great basic--very versatile, 9/4/2014

    Reviewer: (United States)

    I've made three pairs of these for my 18-month-old son so far: one in seersucker, one in a lightweight denim shirting, and one in a linen blend. I made the 6-12 month size, but lengthened the legs by about 1.5 inches. They fit beautifully--covering the diaper without riding up. I will definitely be making more for fall and winter in corduroy.

    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Worn so often they wore out!, 3/6/2014

    Reviewer: (Tintinara, SA, Australia)

    One of the few pieces of clothing I couldn't hand down. They fell apart from use! I made these for my Twins in soft pinwale cord. They had an excellent long leg and a good high waist. The draw string nicely disguised the elastic waist and is a great design feature. I just wanted to share a tip on threading the elastic http://www.flickr.com/photos/motherof5/5104359946/in/set-72157625588979808 A great unisex pattern.


    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sweet little pants!, 8/2/2013

    Reviewer: (Colorado)

    I have made these pants in the 6-12 mo. size for my baby boy. They fit well and just look very cute. Like all O&S patterns, the construction is clearly explained in detail and gives a very professional finish. A friend pulled out the back waistband while my baby was wearing them to try to find a size tag and was surprised to learn that I had made them! One small thing to note, the pattern only is for the pants and stencil, the shirt is not included.


    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sandbox Pants for Everyone!, 7/2/2013

    Reviewer: (VA, USA)

    This is one of my all time favorite Oliver + S patterns. I've used it for my son, nephews, and even my girls! I love the drawstring waistband with elastic. It avoids the all elastic waistband that my kids seem to start disliking the older they get but still allows for some give. The Sandbox Pants make great shorts too!;)

  • Please note that all errata have been corrected in the digital version of this pattern. These notes apply only to the first printing of the paper pattern.

    1. Piece #3, waistband: cut 1, not 2.
    2. On the large sizes (4-8) please note that in the first printing the size labels on pocket pieces #5 and #6 got transposed at the bottom edge of the pockets. They should be arranged as shown below.
