Oliver and S patterns has a new free shorts pattern. I used the pattern to make my Bitty Girl some new sleep shorts. The fabric is from some vintage crib sheets I thrifted ages ago.
I loooovvvvveee vintage crib sheets, you usually have to cut around staining and holes but the prints are always sooooo sweet. I tried to capture Bitty Girl in these but she is way to busy to be bothered.
The pattern is very straightforward and comes in sizes 6 months to 12 years so if you're new to sewing this may be a great starter pattern for you. I always love Oliver and S patterns for the clarity of the instructions and the great overall fit. Ok "that's all I have to say about that" (Forrest Gump voice thrown in for free).
I first began sewing with vintage Barbie dress patterns at 8 years old. I was a prolific Barbie dress maker until I was too old to make doll clothes. I began sewing again 6 years ago and haven't stopped since.
