But, well, I made SHORTS! Nothing fancy, but I've been meaning to make them shorts with these fabrics for over a year!
First up, some for little E. These are a modified version of the Quick Change Pants pattern from Anna Maria Horners book Handmade Beginnings. I didn't make them reversible, and shortened them to shorts length. I added an inch to the top to account for cloth diaper but and an elastic casing and bingo!
I still made them to long, but I added a huge hem which I could roll up even more to make them fit like this. They will last a while as his big brother technically fits the width of his Quick Change Pants I made him in the same size years ago!
Oh and the fabric? Why yes, his but is covered in a small scrap of lion fabric from the new Cotton + Steel line! And the buses are Kokka linen/cotton. This little boy LOVES buses, he was super excited when he saw them!
Next up? Radio shorts! I have had this fabric from over 2 years I think and always planned to make shorts with it. So I did. And I have enough for more shorts!
These are the shorts version of the Clean Slate Pants in 4T. This is a great pattern! It's available as part of the extended Pattern Anthology Collection as well until this Monday! I just did the basic pants with the pockets, but in the future I totally want to do the welt back pockets and a fly! I also just ran the elastic through the whole waist band instead of leaving a flat front. My blue accent fabric was just a thinner quilting cotton which I hadn't interfaced, so it needed something more.
