Shorts are on my to-do list so as soon as Rae posted her Parsley pants-to-shorts tutorial I dived straight in!
I used a nice soft linen with a fun Red Riding hood print. I followed the instructions for adjusting the pattern from the post and measured a 5" crotch length so that they were quite short (but long enough to last the summer).
I have a diva on my hands at times. Here she is doing her very best impression of Daphne from Scooby Doo. I think she has it nailed!
I also tried the Flashback Tee (also of Made by Rae fame). What a great pattern! It was so simple to put together and the finish is really nice on it with the collar and wide cuffs. Alas this size is too small for my daughter. I thought it might be as I was making it. This is the size 6 so will cut another one out in a 7 to see the difference.
