I loved the Mermaid Shorts that I made with the Sycamore Shorts pattern so much that I made a boy version for my son. I used a bright lizard print that I have had in my stash for a while. The print is so busy that I used a solid black and solid blue for the pockets. The only differences between the boy shorts and the girl shorts is the pocket shape which is more geometric for the boys and the length which is longer for the boys. These came together really quickly which thrilled my son, he couldn't wait for them to be finished. I added a little ribbon tag to the back so he has no problem figuring out which side is the front. I have a feeling they will be the most worn pair of play shorts he has this summer.
