Imari Pleated Shorts

To make shorts for Anita was on my to do list so getting to test The Imari Pleated Shorts from Sansahash was perfect.

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.

I'm a mom to four fantastic kids, three boys and a girl. To teenagers and to toddlers so never a dull moment in our household :) We are from Iceland but have been living in Norway since 2001. I have a newfound passion for sewing. My hubby travels a lot for work and I needed something to do at night when the little ones are a sleep because suddenly my teenage boys would rather hang with their friends or play on their pc's than be with me - why is beyond my imagination :) Thanks to Pinterest I found some amazing sewing bloggers, whom I've been stalking, and realized that I could dig out my sewing machine and start sewing. Now it's all I think about. I've been hoarding pdf patterns and learning from all the amazing tutorials that are out there. I've decided to try out this blogging thing as well to document my sewing journey. We'll see how it goes! Thanks for stopping by, I would love it if you would leave me a comment! XOXO Dagbjört
