Linen Spot Shorts Giveaway!


Entries now closed.

Today I decided to make some shorts for Little Miss Two +3mts.
*edit: now part of the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway day. Click on the hand for the list.

I found inspiration from the French site for Japanese Couture Addicts from the Sassy Girls Clothes Japanese book I own. Yes, it's a mouthful. I just wanted more time and luscious fabric.

I really love the plaid tunic and I have always admired the shorts that were made from the pattern. I had bought some double-sided gingham from Leslie (as you do) and had no idea what to make from it. It's like a linen blend and being double-sided I really did want to make use of it. However, double-sided things are not to be... for now.

I digress, I made up the shorts in the usual size (the smallest - 90cm Toddler) and guess what? the darn waist was too small!!! About 10cm too small to be exact. I don't know how or why the pattern is like that. I yanked off her nappy and it just fit. I squished her into it. What a shame. Even hubby liked it alot.


So, I am giving it away! The waist measures 43cms so if you have a skinny 2T you might get away with it. Otherwise, it should fit a 1yr - 1.5T (if that makes any sense)




** Just leave a comment and I'll draw out the winner on Sunday evening and announce Monday morning (AEST 8 Dec) **

I'll get DD to draw a name out of a box. All tags will be the same length so it doesn't matter if you have a longer name.

Off to do my normal duties and clean the house ; )
