The positive comments from people I didn't even know were amazing. All wanting to know where I got the fabric... I made it, and can do it in any name!
First off - the pattern is again from Tie Dye Diva - the Way Cool Shorts. Nice and easy - and I just love the pockets. I will be making them again next summer - the sizing goes from 2 to 8.
Now - an explanation as to why these shorts look so wacky! Quite simple - it was supposed to be a sunhat! I ordered two fat quarters - one for each side, then realised my son's head was NOT suited to that pattern... So they morphed into some very unique shorts. I only just just just had enough to do it - I've made the pockets slightly smaller than the pattern states - simply because I didn't have enough fabric.
The most time consuming part was keeping switching top stitching thread - I used white on the blue, and blue on the white. Would anyone actually have noticed if I had sewn it all white?? Probably not! :)
Here's one of the pockets...
And the back...
This is the closest thing to a shot of my son wearing his shorts...scampering away from me up the stairs!!
Love this pattern - and as I said, will definitely be making it again!
