Nope all good. Now where was I? complaining about the weather...that doesn't make for an interesting crafty blog post so here goes with some sewing..........
|Size L shorts, size 5 shirt - here on a 7 yr old|
|How cute are these 2 tushes!|
I made a couple of similar pairs for The Boy months ago (looking back it was October, time flies), then a pair for a little buddy who turned 4 in January. I loved them so much I though I would whip up a few pairs and see how they go in the store.

These new shorts are a little more refined & professional- fully lined pockets, adjustable waists, double stitched side seams etc, and I'm really happy. Who knew that a scant few years ago I could barely sew a straight line!
SET 1 - Black & White check:
SET 2: Rockin' it in Lemon
I'm going to add them to the Facebook & Madeit stores so we'll see how they fare.
Because of the long-length cut of the shorts, I decided to make all the shorts with adjustable waists to make the shorts able to fit the widest range of kids.
Sizes available will be:
LARGE - 25cm inner seam, fits ages 4-7
MEDIUM- 20cm inner seam, fits ages 2-4
SMALL - 15cm inner seam, fits ages 12mth-3
Of course this is just a guide, best you measure the length of your wee man and make your choice from there.
Whew, what a pic heavy post. I'll have to scour around to find more shirts, I love this new gig!
