City gym shorts

I almost missed Kids Clothes Week last week, but I managed to squeeze in an hour of sewing yesterday. Just enough time to complete these cute City Gym Shorts.
This is a free pattern from Purl Soho. The perfect pattern for a quick summer sew.

Testing the Morocco shorts

A while ago I tested the Morocco shorts, the latest pattern from Petit à Petit & Family. This is a slim fit, unisex pattern for pants or shorts with several fun details, such as a cool tuxedo stripe and double welt pockets with pocket flap. The pattern offers lots of opportunities for color-blocking.
I made the tuxedo shorts, size 7, for my tall and slender girl who will turn 7 this summer. And as you see, the fit is spot on.
