I started sewing when Christian was 8 months old and as I learned more and more about kids clothes, the magazine "Ottobre" kept coming up in blogs and websites that I frequented! I finally bought a couple used issues to see what all the hype was! Can you believe for about $20 you get 20+ patterns of adorable kids clothes and accessories???!!! It is such a bargain! (I bought mine used for $11!) The only learning curve is figuring out how to convert the metric measurements since the magazine is produced in Finland!
I wanted to make something to go with the Pleated Penny and I thought this style of shorts was really cute! I love the side vents and little ruffle accent! It was super easy to put together! From start to finish you could sew a pair up in a couple of hours or less!!!
Right now they are a little big but I'm glad - she might be able to get some use out of them next year too!
