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.)
