Basic pants for my eight year old son. I modified Burda pattern 9860 so that it has adjustable waist (elastic with buttonholes), no back pockets but a hook to secure keys etc. I also added 10 cm on the length, since he is pretty tall. I actually made him two more or less identical pairs, because he liked the first pair so much. The fabric is heavy blue cotton twill and I topstitched in red for decoration.
