shorts!

Both Oscar and Ruby are in serious need of bottom-half clothing, so shorts were toward the top of my Kids Clothes Week list.

After Jessica posted a pair of Bubble Pocket Shorts, I instantly bought the pattern from Elegance and Elephants and got to work.  I haven't been this proud of a garment in a long time - they are SO cute!  And they are much more simple to put together than they look.  I've had to market these to Ruby as "Snow White Shorts," since they are not in her preferred color palate (pink, pink, and more pink!).

The plan is to make a casual princess tee just like the one at Crafterhours to complete the outfit and provide relief to her poor Snow White dress that has been worn to death.  Also, I want to make a million more pairs of these shorts.  Have I mentioned that I love them?


For Oscar, I made three pairs of shorts using Made by Rae's soon-to-be-released Parsley Pants Pattern.  The big gingham and crazy animal print shorts are just the quick, basic pattern ... no frills.  For the plaid, I chose the flat front and pouch pocket options.


Last night I also cut fabric for 3 t-shirts, and have plans for at least two more shirts and a dress (who needs sleep, right?).  Oh, and a bucket hat.  I probably should sew something for Cora.  :)  (Don't feel bad for her ... she has clothes coming out her ears.)

P.S. Today is the last day to enter the Interactive Book of Mormon Stories Vol. 2 Giveaway!

Jill, I loooooove your version of the Bubble Pocket Shorts! That shade of yellow is one of my fave colours of all time. And you've inspired me to get busy and make some bottoms for my boy, too. Thank you for buying my pattern!

I hear ya on the "pink" issue! Those yellow shorts are simply the best. I might just have to splurge and order the pattern!

Aww the bubble shorts are so adorable, I do wish that I have a girl. But that's ok, sewing for boy is fun too. I love the gingham shorts. what kind of fabric is it and do you line it? I have something similar, medium weight fashion fabric, i wonder if it's too flimsy for a shorts. thanks

I've been so wanting to try making Henry some shorts for the summer. I don't know why I have been so intimidated.
