Description

A pair of sarouel pants for my son using shweshwe fabric from South Africa.
The pattern is from Full of Patterns, a Japanese pattern store. It is a very easy pattern and I think it perfectly suits the shweshwe fabric. It has deep side seam pockets, big back pockets, and a pair of tabs for the cuffs.

    I was looking over this pattern. These shorts are awesome by the way!! And I would love to make them for myself. I know you said on your blog you use google translate to look over the patterns, I am trying to get my browser to translate it. I wonder if you have ever come across this style of shorts in adult patterns. I’ve been searching for this style with the roll up cuff in US women’s sizes and I’m getting nothing. :( Anyone have any luck in that? I just came into a book that teaches me how to grade up patterns. I’m going to try to get the specs from the patterns site you listed and convert it to inches and grade up to my size! Wish me luck!
