The pattern is for both bubble look with elastic legs and flat-styled with hemmed legs. There are separate back pattern pieces for each style, both have elastic back, a mock fly and the back has a v-yoke and patch pockets.
I made the bubble look, I just love bubble shorts on little girs! I also love a change to add piping, cause you know piping makes everything better!
The pattern ranges from size 6 months to 12 years. I had to blend sizes for Anita to get the perfect fit, I made her a size 4 width and 6 length and it’s spot on. So go by your child’s measurements and you can’t go wrong.
The pockets are fun to go nuts and embellish any way you like. The fabric I used is stretch twill I bought a couple of years ago on sale at my local fabric store.
Anita would choose to wear a dress rather than pants everyday. But these are approved by Her Highness and the butterfly button plays a big role in that. I guess it’s all about knowing your princess, wink wink!
She is ready to jump into summer, just one more month and it’s vacation time! Next on the sewing list are shorts for Viktor, now to find the perfect shorts pattern for boys.
