-little shorts!-

Summer is here!  Felicity finished preschool for the year, and Juliana finished kindergarten (homeschool style!).  It gets hot here during the summer.  My girls have lots of skirts and dresses, but Juliana especially needs some more play clothes.  I have been in love with this little shorts pattern by Oliver + S since they came out with it, so I was excited to have a reason to make them.  I love the fun retro look. I used chambray from Joann's for the main part of the shorts and an older yellow print I have had for a long time.  I really like yellow.  It is a good accent color that goes with lots of other colors.  It has been awhile since I made an Oliver + S pattern, and I realized as I was making it that their patterns really are set apart from a lot of other patterns.  There are just so many small details that really make for a nice garment.  

So, she is looking a little grumpy in this picture, but looking at it made me kind of sad.  She is growing up so fast.  Take a look at this picture from three years ago (almost exactly!).

Birthday Party Dress

This was the first Oliver + S pattern I ever made.  She looks so cute and chubby.

Felicity wanted in on the photo shoot, and how can you resist these two hugging like that. 

Easter Dresses

Here they are three years ago in their Easter dresses!  Felicity looks so funny and cute!

The best of friends.  Love them.

My favorite patterns are free ones that are online!

Congrats!  I will be sending you an e-mail, Megan!


  1. Congratulations Megan!
    Those shorts are so cute. I've been looking for that pattern in the smaller sizes. I have to look harder now.

  2. I adore 'flash back' photos.
    Lovely shorts,I have made the blouse many times but yet to sew the shorts.
    You have inspired me to do so.

  3. I love those shorts! Very cute. I just bought a different Oliver + S pattern, now I have my eye on this one too!

  4. Cute shorts! I have several Oliver + S patterns waiting to be finally used. Hopefully I can get to them soon! Your girls are so adorable. The comparison photos are great, but bittersweet! Why do kids have to grow so fast?!


I love to hear from you! I try to reply to most comments via e-mail, so make sure to add your e-mail address if it isn't linked up (especially if you have a question!)
