Every outdoor adventurer needs a pair of pants with cargo pockets. Where else can one hide all their little treasures? Here, Alicia Welcher will show you how to add a cargo pocket to any pants pattern. This is great to make for a boy who’s outgrowing the “cutesy” stuff. Just remember to check the pockets before you do laundry!
Note: The pattern and instructions for the pants and shirt (size 2-6) along with the alligator machine embroidery design shown here can all be downloaded from classicsewingmagazine.com. It is listed as “Creating Cargo Pants” on the Autumn 2017 downloads webpage.
With purchase of the issue, you will get access to all Autumn pattern and design downloads.
