Shorts August 10, 2011Posted by Judy in Sewing projects.
All of the babes got their dad’s genes: tall and skinny. This is fine by me, but it sure makes it difficult to find shorts for them. Pretty much, everything falls off. And if you cinch down the waist, well, it just looks dumb because it is SOOO cinched down. It’s even harder to find stuff for DD. I’m probably old-fashioned, but I’m just not interested in having my 2 year olds butt hanging out of the bottom of her shorts. When summer started, and I realized the dilemma, I just decided to make her a bunch of shorts. You know, the kind that would be modest, cute and would actually fit.
The first pair I made was too tight (whoops, so much for modesty!) Those very quickly because play shorts. I fixed the pattern after that, and churned out about 4 pairs of shorts, so she has been pretty well set for the summer. I have no idea why I don’t just make all of their pants. Kids pants are super easy to make and require very little fabric. Note to self: must make more pants!
And this post would be useless without pics. Sooo, here they are.
