I haven't had much of a chance to sew lately, but I did get around to making some various bottoms.
The new Ottobre for kids is a big hit in our house. Lots of older girl things!
A jean skirt for KK. This was supposed to have kind of a military feel. But I couldn't find 1 inch grommets for the front closure so I used buttons. It is very structured and not loosy goosy twirly like her sister wears!
Pattern: Ottobre 1/2012 #33 Size 140
This was the only "action shot" I got!
Then I had to make Baby Chey Chey (the girls' cousin) a birthday gift. he is 4 and loves dinosaurs so I wanted to make him a pair of shorts that matched the ones I made for Theo. But of course I waited until the night before, so I had to make something a little less labor intensive.... And because I waited so long, I couldn't make a matching shirt, so I had to run out the morning of the party and buy one! Why do I do this to myself! If it wasn't for procrastination I wouldn't get anything done!
These are from the same Otto that Theo's shorts are from!
Pattern: Ottobre 3/2011 #22. i think I made these in size 116, but they were kind of long so I made a really big hem. I know bermuda's are supposed to be long, but these seemed excessive! But I don't have boys so I don't know how they are wearing their shorts these days.
Double front pockets!
No pockets on the back!
