More ‘shorts on the line’!

For my younger daughter I made ‘City Gym Shorts’, you can find the tutorial here. DSC03347

I made them in a purple cotton fabric I had knocking around and trimmed them with a lovely liberty print. My daughter chose. The pattern is really well written and so simple to follow, it would be a great project for a beginner, but also fun and satisfying for more experienced sewers looking for some great looking practical shorts for their kids.

I made two tiny changes, I made them slightly longer (only about half an inch) and added a back pocket.

They are comfortable and easy to move about in. She likes them – phew!
