An easy refresh for any kid’s summer wardrobe: shorts!
It’s been quite a while since I sewed something super simple for my kids; I’m always full of ideas for new pattern hacks and designs so it’s refreshing to go back to the basics!
Our sweet Mimi is a total chunk of a baby and after pulling out summer clothes recently, I realized that she can’t fit into a single pair of shorts her sisters wore before her! I decided to pull out the Kid Shorts pattern from Made Everyday to whip her up a couple pairs.
GUYS, she’s not even 2 years old yet (her birthday’s in a few weeks) but I ended up making her a size FOUR! Her little thighs and belly are hilariously chubby. In fact, her waist measurement is a whopping 1/2″ smaller than Kira’s, who is almost 6…haha!
I love all three of these pairs; I made the shorter racer shorts with bias trim for two of them because they are THE easiest ever! Seriously, after cutting out fabric, I think they each took me about 20 minutes to sew. A great way to amp up a kid’s wardrobe in just one afternoon.
I think the cute animal print pair are my favorite…which do you like best??
