I am so addicted in sewing shorts for my kids with the fabrics I recycled from my old cotton shirts. This time, instead of sewing out of the same pattern repeatedly, I made some variations on the kid shorts sewing pattern for this girl shorts, by adding a knot or tie to the shorts’ hem.
Last time, I sewed the hem with ribbed band in the kid shorts tutorial, in this girl shorts I modified the hem band to a tie-band. In additional, I used coordinated color with strawberry print fabric on the waistband, pockets and tie-hem bands to cheer up the girl shorts further.
My daughter loves this shorts so much that she wears it to her tuition class showing off to her teacher and friends “Mommy sewed this for me from her old shirts!” and proudly walk into the classroom with a **BIG smile** …. Knowing that my daughter appreciates it so much really pays off the time I’ve spent in the craft room every night. Same astonished feeling happened when Jennifer showed me the boxer shorts she sewed for her husband by using the unisex boxer shorts pattern & tutorial… I am really happy and this is the best way you gals motivated me to make and share more here. Please feel free to feedback to me with your amazing handmade if you have made something from here.
