Love it!

This pattern makes super cute shorts and is easy to follow. It's an easy sew, but a little time consuming, especially when trying to sew with a 6 month old who wants your full attention! I will be making more of these in bigger sizes as bub grows. I'm very pleased with the finished product.

Pixie shorts 6-9 months

These turned out cute. However, I was confused about the cutting line for the short version. The leg room was ample the the inseam was very short and I was concerned they would limit leg mobility while baby was wearing them. Still waiting to find out if that was the case. They were an easy sew but not a quick sew. I wan to make the knicker length for a toddle next.

I love this pattern so much. I used a stretch fabric and I don't think I would do that again, but my daughter loves wearing these with her tights in the winter :)

Lovely little pattern

First make was from french terry which I think is too thick but my daughter loves them on her little boy. I love the online instructions very easy to follow.
