This post was timed with precision. All of my kids need shorts, and the plans were to make them each a pair, but 2/6 is almost half, and half rounds up to a whole, right?
But, now that I realize how quickly I can whip these up, we might have a shorts overload from my enthusiasm and assembly line type of production.
Carla and Rachel are hosting the perfectly timed Shorts on the Line, perfect because it seems like shorts never make it through to the next Dill daughter in line.This also coincided with Dana asking me to test her shorts pattern that is coming out soon! When the stars align like that, I make star shorts. And checkerboard, because they're friends.
I couldn't find my 8 stamp for the tag, but I've never drawn my eights properly anyway. Even my kids tell me I'm not supposed to do 2 circles. But I do anyway.
These are both from the same pattern, just different options. They're a nice simple pattern that I will be using all summer long. Olive's has a gathered waist all around, Pearl's is just gathered in the back with a flat front, both options on Dana's pattern.
Divine has already requested a pair like Olive's.
Most anything that uses bias tape is a friend of mine.
Plus, they matched my nails, which is always fortuitous.I've also decided that I should always sew in pairs. They began to offer suggestions of what to do for our photo shoot.
Like the horses. Of course. The horses. And then Pearl thanked me afterward for letting them use them in our shoot.
Then they just got crazy (it's how most things conclude in this house) and we had a little photo bomber who is all about the balls.
Check out what else Carla and Rachel have planned:
