Hey, time is limited! I finished these shorts after 7 p.m. last night, but it wasn't too late to run outside with Daddy, who was practicing his swing.
I don't have much time to spare, so here is a rushed review!
Pattern: Oliver + s Class Picnic Shorts
Fabric: Leftover pieces of blue linen given to me by one of my sewing buddies. I think she said she got it at Joann's. It's wonderfully soft.
First time? Yes, this is my first time trying the shorts!
Size: 18-24 months. Definitely a bit big, but I'm serious, I just can't sew anymore 12-18 month sized clothes for Maggie. She has so many handmades! This girl needs to grow faster so that I have an excuse to sew for her.
Modifications: None! I sewed these exactly as drafted, using the same fabric for the facings rather than a contrast fabric.
The good: This pattern is easy and fast, but satisfyingly clever and well drafted. The way the facings go on is really clever and fun. I had fun making these!
The not-so-good: Sewing on said facings might be a bit tricky for a beginner, and your topstitching skills will be on full display (this would be less the case in a printed fabric). My topstitching isn't perfect, and I questioned my choice of white thread, but in the end, they are cute and it's okay.
Make again? Yes!! These are SO CUTE!
Okay, need to get back to sewing!!
Sketchbook Shirt, all cut out!
