Luckily for those of you who like free baby pants patterns, my little man keeps growing. And I keep liking the handmade pants way more than the store bought kind!

It is all in the waistband to tell you the truth.

The store bought kind is always digging into their precious bellies when they twist and turn, and I hate seeing that. Babies are supposed to be comfortable at all times – even in khakis and jeans!

All it took was for me to stumble across a fantastic pair of monkey cords, and I realized that it was indeed time to make the next size up of basic baby pants.

You can find the post for sizes 0-6 months, and 6 – 12 months HERE.


The pants have a bit of a slimmer fit in the leg this time, as I was looking for something nicer for Sunday wear. But to keep them loose leg, just add 1/2″ – 1″ along the outer leg ‘fold’ pattern line.


I also didn’t bother with the snaps at the inner leg this time around.

After all, Ben is getting so big!  No need for snapsies anymore.  So sad.


Gah, I love that face!


The tutorial for making the baby pants can be found in the original 0-6 month post. For your free 12 – 18 Month baby pants pattern, see below:
