The long and the short of it

I'm still madly sewing away, trying to tick pressies off the handmade christmas list...

I found this groovy fabric at Savers a few weeks ago on one of my adventures with Big Cat. It's a really heavy cotton and there was about 2 metres in total.


The little girl who is receiving the twirly skirt has a big brother who is 4 years old, so I made him what was supposed to be a pair of shorts (obviously my pattern adjusting skills leave a lot to be desired). I think these will end up being more like knickerbockers, but I think they'll still look really cute with a blue t-shirt and a pair of brown leather sandals.

These ones are for a friends little boy who is 1.75 years old.... so somewhere in-between the 18 months sizing and size 2 clothing. I'm really hoping that these ones fit, but at least they actually look like shorts, and not knickerbockers.

Now, back to the list!

That fabric is sensational. Longs always become shorts later! They look great.

They are cute shorts. I have never made pants before. I am going to try and make some pj pants before I got back to uni. Mum said pj pants would be a good beginner project before I try to make proper pants.
