Your little friend will be ready for whatever warm weather fun comes her way with this versatile PDF capri pants pattern. At full length, these pants hit at mid-calf, but are designed to be rolled up to whatever length you prefer, revealing the contrasting lining underneath.
Other features include optional front and back patch pockets, which may be sewn from matching or contrasting fabric for a variety of looks. The pockets are lined, adding additional detail, as is the waistband casing. An elasticized waist allows for easy pull-on dressing, while front eyelets and a mock tied drawstring add a touch of realism to the look.
Designed as part of the Summer Camp Collection by Matilda’s Closet, these pants complement the Mock Button-Front Shirt and Bucket Hat. Stitch up the entire outfit, then add the coordinating Convertible Bunk Bed pattern by AptOne8, and your little friend will be all set for summer camp!

Love this pattern. It became part of a birthday present for my granddaughter’s “Kit” doll.
These shorts, paired with the Bucket Hat and the Mock Button Front Shirt from the same designer, made the cutest outfit! Fit was great, and instructions kept me right on track. This was my first time putting eyelets in fabric, and would have been helpful to have some extra instructions on putting eyelets in fabric.
Once I got the right pocket on the right leg it was a breeze to make-up. Looked so good I made another pair in a different colour.
My granddaughter requested shorts for summer, so I found this pattern and thought it would be nice to have shorts and capris. This pattern was fun and easy to follow. Both styles made up cute and I loved the tie belt that set them off.
Easy pattern and great design. I adapted the pattern to skip the string. I’ve made these twice with great success.
