- how come other people's children cooperate for photos and mine don't? -
One of my favourite things about Christmas as a child was getting a new outfit or at least some new piece of clothing. From memory, Mum always sewed us something new as one of our Christmas presents. I remember always hoping that we would get to open our presents before going to mass so that I could show off my new outfit straight away. I remember feeling very disappointed when we didn’t.
I don’t know about you, but for my favourite part of mass as a child was communion. I loved watching everyone file up the aisles so I could get a good look at all the outfits. Rather than praying for eternal happiness, I would be on my knees deciding who was the best dressed. (On the odd occasion that I still go to mass…Christmas and Easter…this is still my favourite part!)
Anyway, to keep up with tradition, I'm trying to sew my three children a new piece of clothing/outfit for Christmas. This morning I finished up these shorts for my boys.
I sewed them using Burda 9793. I reckon they look fabulous. I really am super chuffed! I omitted the 2 sets of pockets on the original pattern (side and back) in favour of these cargo style pockets. I actually copied the pockets from a pair of hand-me-downs from of nephew - thanks Katherine.
