quick kid shorts

I made these shorts for Emma yesterday to go with the shirt I made her for her birthday. They took hardly any time and hardly any fabric. I liked the colors though the print was kind of plain, but I thought it would be a great sort of neutral for shorts. I used a pair of 24 month pants to trace for the shorts pattern so hopefully they’ll fit and I followed this basic tutorial for how to put them together.

Note: make sure to unfold the “pattern” pants when measuring the length of the elastic for the waist. My first attempt at the waistband would have been a tight fit on a doll, much less a one-year-old.

As I’ve mentioned before, there isn’t a big selection of fabric at Hobby Lobby. On the plus side, they have several collections of fabrics that compliment each other.

Here’s a closer shot of the fabrics on the shorts and the shirt.

And this shirt in its entirety.

Hopefully Emma won’t have outgrown the shirt already before the shorts get there!
