The Review:

I have had this Lemon French Terry in my stash for a little while and I wasn’t 100% sure what I was going to make, but when I saw this shorts pattern, I knew it would look so good with a bit of white trim. This make came together so well, I am just itching to make about 10 more pairs of these super cute and functional shorts.

I like that it has a few different options, like the ability to have the leggings inbuilt into the shorts for a little more comfort underneath.

There was a little bit of fiddling with the knit binding, but I think the next time I make it I would be quicker again as I know what I’m doing this time. You can also omit the pockets if you want to save a little bit of time. If you are anything like me though, there is ALWAYS time for pockets haha.

I also like that the waistband is enclosed making it nice and soft of Miss J’s tummy.

This one got a HUGE thumbs up and grin when she saw the finished outfit. I used the Kids Essential Tee in tank version in a lusciously soft Rib Knit from Frankie Bear Fabrics to complete the look.
