Shorts are always present in the girls closet, no matter the time of the year (of course that during those chilling months they won’t wear them outside!) and navy blue is a colour that they always wear, since they were small babies. The last ones (also in navy blue corduroy) lasted a couple of years but now they were really shorts, so a new pair for each was really a need.
I had bought the pattern for the Clover Shorts from Willow & Co in the start of the summer, but I didn’t found the time to actually make them, so now was about the time to try. I choose navy blue, because I want them to go with everything, which is the greatest advantage of this colour, and for that reason I didn’t made the sash, but in the future I might make a couple with fabric from future tunics/shirts.
I liked them as they were (photo below), but once there would not be a sash, why not a little bow? And a little bow was added to the pocket!
I did both in size 5, but think I could have made a size (for little lady F) or two (for little lady M) down. Anyway I was pleased with the result and they have plenty of room to grow, even if that might take a year or two!!
Here it is little lady M with her new shorts happily doing her ballet pose (she really can’t help it)…
And little lady F with her own shorts.
I enjoyed how the shorts turned out and I can see myself sewing new ones, because while sewing these I was already imagining new ones with some new details.
The girls also liked their new shorts and they were perfect for a trampoline Birthday Party. That is how they were tested, with plenty of jumps!
