These are just a very simple, cute pair of functional shorts. I tried to bling them up a bit and I’m very happy with them. I like how Ottobre gives you a bunch of basic kids patterns with a twist. The “twist” on these is a slightly gathered leg in the back of the leg at the hem. Of course, I opted not to do this, but I love that there are so many design details on Ottobre patterns.
If you look carefully, you can see the purple topstitching thread. I really like the look of it. I can also see it being used down an arm on a sleeve. Hmmm, that may be coming next. I love this stuff! You buy it by the yard. It’s about 5” wide and on a spool.
Hmmmmm, this is for my littlest. She may need a top or two to go with this . . .
