It's time for SHORTS ON THE LINE!!!
My three year old is completely obsessed with shorts.
She tries to wear more than one pair sometimes! It's so hot here it's high necessity to be in shorts at all times!
I went through a lot of ideas.
I wanted them to be super cute AND super simple without being something that I've seen a lot of (or ever!)
I am always inspired by e-annika shop and pin almost everything they make! Seriously, it's like my exact taste!
They have a propensity of putting animals and animal faces on things just because.
I am also a sucker for all things harlequin. I just love the idea of taking two great things and rather than choosing between them, just sew'em together!
My little Sephira seems to really like them!
I drafted the pattern myself as there aren't any sarousel patterns out there with a seam up the middle instead of the sides. But to create the look I wanted I needed the side seams to be uninterrupted and the front to be separated.
I decided to make a wide waistband with wide elastic.
The kitty cat face buttons on at the eyes and is soooo soft!
They are just so damn fun on her!
I tried to find this chartreuse Doli tank I made a year ago, but after about an hour of looking I gave up and decided to make something instead.
I went with a pattern I've had for a while but never sewn: the Banyan girl's shirt pattern by Figgy's. I had made it in the 2/3T size as it was her measurements plus a little extra wiggle room. But I don't know what happened with the neck because her head would not fit through!
Time was a crunchin' because we made plans to go hiking at the waterfalls and I wanted to take pictures in the morning so instead of being a good girl and ripping the seam out, I just cut carefully right beneath the stitch line and made a new binding piece a little longer and it fit just perfectly over her head with no trouble!
And we both love it too!
I even [sorta] managed to get a family shot of Jon and the girls, because Sephira refused to be away more than two feet for two seconds at a time from daddy.
I'd love to give big shout outs to Rachael and Carla for asking me to be a part of the tour!!! I love the brainstorming process so much! Thank you!!!
