Lovely shorts for the summer – for boys and girls. I am totally in love with the pattern and flexibility in fabrics. I made two versions, one which is somehow more suited for girls and includes a paperbag cuff and one which can be worn by every child. The paperbag cuff is lined with matching cotton fabric on the inside. 

“Recently I made new shorts for my 3 year old daughter. The moment she saw it, she ran towards me and gave me a huge hug. I will never forget her shiny eyes and the happy impression on her face when she looked at me and said “Dat is lief van je mama!” (Dutch for “This is sweet of you mummy”) – You can probably image how this made my day!”
