Puppet Show Shorts.

We are to the point in our weather we can wear bare arms or legs during the day, so now is as good a time as any to start on a summer wardrobe. 

I pulled out a cute twill  I bought last year that I meant to use for Abby's shorts, but she didn't like it and I didn't have much sewing time being I just had a baby.  Izzy is obsessed with polka dots, so I knew she would love these.

They are the Oliver + S Puppet Show Shorts in a size 4, I probably could have been just fine making a three, but this way they will (hopefully) last all the way through summer.   I am sure they will drown George, ha!

It was pretty hard to get her to stand still, she loves hamming it up for the camera.

I love this pattern so much, those little gathers around the legs kill me dead.

Once I showed her the pockets she was SO excited and wouldn't take her hands out.

It's turning out to be a pretty productive sewing week for me, which is pretty rare as of late.  My house isn't too messy (no more than usual) and the kids are all happy and fed, so a tiny bit of balance.
Jack and Sam could use some new tops, so I think that will be next on my always growing, never ending list of makes.


  1. These are adorable. I must try this pattern for Maggie this summer! (Definitely not summer weather here yet!) Izzy's delight in the pockets is obvious and CUTE! Man, I remember when she was a BABY! When did the twins get so grown up? Crazytown.

  2. Love!! The color and the polka dots and of course the model are so adorable!!
