I'm participating in another sewalong...this time it's all about shorts!

shorts: Ottobre Design 03/12 #5 "Donkey"
top: Gymboree Tank Top
The impetus behind these shorts was a recent Gymboree order of knit shorts and tank tops. I'd purchased 4 tank tops and 2 pairs of shorts to mix and match for both little girls. Sadly, the shorts were all too big on MG. *Yes, I do purchase clothing for my kids. Not often, but occasionally.*
The colors in the line (Sea Splash) coordinated well with the leftover stretch terry from BK's swimsuit coverup PLUS there was a pair of shorts I wanted to make MG from the summer Ottobre Design issue. I followed the pattern with no re-mixing or modifying (shocking I know!). I sewed up the biggest size which is a 92. Good thing Miss Molly is slim.:)
