My poor little neglected boy tore a hole in his very favorite "Kitty" shorts, so after I repaired the hole, I decided to make him a new pair of shorts, out of this fun fireman print that he picked out.Heather Ross's Weekend Sewing, and so I wanted to use it, but Logan is currently wearing the largest size, and they are way too short and a wee bit snug, so I decided to sort of cheater grade them up by adding 1/2 inch (for a total of 2 inches around) to the width of each pattern piece and 2 inches total to the length. I think it worked well and preserved the cute shape of these pants.
Now, if only I could get him to wear them!!! Kids!
ETA: He wore them!! Apparently, they are swimming shorts. Silly me... When I told him to go get his shorts for the Splash Park, he came back with these in hand. Who was I to argue?
