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.
Based on her measurements, I should have sewed a size 8-9, but I decided to go down a size and sewed the 6-7. Glad I did, because these are more than roomy enough. I even had to take them in a bit.
I used the two toned denim left over from the Stylo outfits. You cannot see it here, but I used the dark side of the fabric for the back of the shorts and the lighter side for the front (similar to the Twisted Trousers I made for Stylo).She borrowed her brother's tee for the photoshoot. The snug fit of the tee really adds to the retro feel, don't you think?
