Although spring has barely sprung in our neck of the woods, I'm feeling like summer. So I've been sewing up light shorts for my daughter and experimenting with sweet cotton bloomers for beneath her summer skirts. The bloomers are still in the prototype stage, but here are some shorts that were simple to put together and in size 3, took less than a fat quarter's worth of fabric.
I didn't bother finding a pattern, just laid a pair of shorts that fits her on the fold of the fabric and cut around it with a generous .5" seam allowance.
Stripes just don't photograph well, do they?
But apparently they are good for playing on the patio...
and climbing "trees" (shhh, don't tell her they're just shrubbery!)
My thirty seconds of cooperation by my lovely model is over - bye!
