Bubble Pocket shorts from Elegance & Elephants
I’m ecstatic to show you the shorts I made with the new pattern from E&E!
When Heidi asked if I wanted to test her pattern I was thrilled!
I may have actually begged her to let me test them…that’s not the point.
There are two styles included in the Bubble Pocket Shorts pattern. I made the sailor version. Then I made another pair for Sofia. I’ll show you soon!
I learned how to make an adjustable waistband with this pattern. Guess what? With Heidi’s tutelage, it wasn’t even hard! ( I said tutelage, giggle!) I’m so mad that I didn’t know how sooner. Do you know how many pants I’ve made my daughter, niece, & nephews that could’ve used a couple extra inches?
With the elasticized pockets and cute buttons, I didn’t go too dramatic with the fabric. This pattern has so much under the hood! I used a medium weight khaki. I know these shorts will get a ton of wear, so I wanted it to match lots of things in Bella’s closet.
Bella thinks they look like something that would sell at Justice. If you don’t have an 8 year old with very selective taste- that means its fabulous.
There’s room to grow! These shorts are nice and roomy. I was worried because Bella is on the bigger end of a size 8. But she’ll be able to wear these for quite a while.
I’m definitely not a pro with PDF patterns. They look like a ton of work-but they’re really easy, even for me.
I like making cute things. I like it even more when it’s economical. I love a versatile piece of clothing that will grow with my child. If you sew your children’s clothing, this is not only a fun pattern to add to your stash, but I’d definitely call it an investment as well.
Seriously, you need this pattern.
