McCall Pattern M6502
I bought this pattern about a year ago and finally got around to making them for H, who is desperate for pants.
Granted, he has out grown the largest size (5), but I just added a little here and there as I cut out the fabric and it ended up working out. Actually, this pattern seemed to run larger than the sizing measurements and I ended up taking in the width I had added to the waist and legs.
I think he'll like these because he's not a fan of jeans and this pattern calls for a knit waistband with elastic and a drawstring.
This was a fairly quick and easy project, especially since I didn't bother with the cargo pockets and roll up tabs.
Here's the best I could get with them on him, running to get to school.
