Polka dot shorts.

Girlfriends need some new shorts, and what better short pattern to start with than the Oliver + S Puppet Show Shorts?  I have made them lots before and just love the look of them. 

Girls measured in to a 2T (Izzy) and 18M (George), so I went with 2T so they could both wear them.

I used a lightweight twill from Jo-Ann I picked up last season, they love their "polka ots shorts".

They are both recently obsessed with pockets.  They wont put anything in there except their hands, but they walk around most of the day with their hands stuffed in them. 

I am guessing because they are 2T they are still sized for diapers, which finally the girls are no longer in!  So we get a droopy bum, but that's a-okay!  I also have 2 pairs cut in denim waiting in the to-sew pile, but first a Hide and Seek top for Abby.

Shandiin Tank.

Miss Abby needs some new tops, so here is her first one.

This is the Shandiin Tank, size 8.  I rarely buy a pattern the first time I see it, but after seeing Cindy's versions (especially K's) I immediately bought it.

I found this awesome sauce lace at Jo-ann last time I was in and just knew it was destined to be paired with this pattern. 

(P.S. she is also wearing her chambray shorts)

I love the unique back, and that it doesn't show too much skin.

It is sort of washed out in these pictures, but it is a cream top, not white.

My only complaint is the arm holes are quite low, low enough that she has requested a shirt to go under it so she feels more comfortable.
