It's a miracle really that the boys are even wearing these shorts. I bought this boardie material back in 2009 with the plan to make them each a pair of shorts for the Christmas holidays. Christmas 2009 went by and no shorts. Next, I decided to make them up in time for our holiday to the Sunshine Coast, December 2010. I even cut them out and started to sew them up. However, the holiday came, the holiday went and no shorts.
This weekend, however, I made a little promise to myself to finish off my UFOs and mending before embarking on the new sewing plans swirling around in my head. Also, I would have felt too guilty if they'd grown out of them before I ever finished sewing them.
Ta da! All ready for the Easter holidays with weeks and weeks to spare! So clever and on top of things!
I must add that I love this pattern. I've made it up a few times now and am really quite smitten with it. Although you can't see in the photo, it has a false fly (that may not be the technical term) which makes them appear a bit dressy while keeping them super comfy and easy to go to the loo in - no buttons, clips or zippers!
