Recently, I found this pattern for kids shorts. I decided to take an old, shapeless gown that I never wear and turn it into shorts! The collage below illustrates the process. It took me three times sewing the elastic in before I actually anchored the elastic. How do other people handle this? I just tried to catch both ends of the elastic as I sewed the casing closed.
I may make some pants from this gown too. Rick pointed out that the shorts look kind of like boxers. I still think they’re cute! 🙂 There’s probably enough t-shirt fabric left to make pants and a top for little miss Phoebe!
