My first project for Kids Clothes Week was a pair of shorts for Charlotte.
From my stash I found a selection of fabrics and Charlotte chose this fairly lightweight cotton fabric. I needed a little contrast fabric for the inside of the waistband so teamed it up with some quilting cotton
The Bubble Pocket Shorts pattern from Elegance and Elephants was really easy to follow with nice big photographs to support the instructions. Despite by best attempts to sew for only an hour at a time I just kept sewing until I just about had the shorts finished in one day (with more than a few interruptions from general life!)
The shorts really are fabulous and I am a little bit in love with the massive side pockets. I really love a pocket and they don’t come any better than this!
Do you like the rather stylish hanger I used in these shots? I must have been a stylist in a previous life…it’s almost like I have an eye for it!
