If I tell you: a pattern for shorts or pants that's unisex, comfortable, ultra-quick to sew and suitable for all seasons, what will you say? Dakar of course! A children's sewing essential, this slightly baggy pattern with an elasticated waistband and two front pockets has become an ikatee icon. Our favorite thing about this pattern is the super-varied looks you can give it, depending on the material used.
