I first made these trousers about 4 years ago. I made a red pair three years ago (for my eldest 3rd birthday, in time for his birthday trip to Legoland....by in time I mean I finished them 20 minutes before we got into the car). It has now become a tradition that the boys get a new pair of trousers in time for the first trip ,of the season,to Legoland. So J wants yellow trousers and L wants orange. The orange trousers are based on Simplicity 3856, except that I added a waistband and pockets at the top front, and missed off an external pocket.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I have sew it before (years ago) and will sew it again - my 4 year old loves it. I'll make more for him.
