Bubble shorts

This is my first participation at the Kid’s Clothes Week and although I became a fan of this season theme, upcycled, in one of my last projects, the truth is I didn’t have anything else to use!! I moved to UK less than two years ago so I only brought the clothes that I actually use and are in good conditions. The only one I could use has been used already! Nevertheless I really wanted to be part of the fun 😉

For the pattern I choose the Bubbles Shorts from DoGuincho. I bought this pattern a couple of months ago but then winter started and only now, that I am hopping for the good weather (eventually) and organizing the girls wardrobe for the spring I decided to make them. As for the fabric choice I used a white poplin for the lining and a Liberty Kingly Cord (Sarah’s Secret Garden) that I had already in my stash, bought in sale when I first started making clothes for my girls (that counts as upcycle, right?) and I have to say that I really love this print and despite being cord it have beautiful spring colours.

Together, the pattern and the fabric make a perfect match for spring (my opinion of course!). The shorts look just great and give them a smart look, but are practical as shorts to play 🙂

I made both shorts in size 5. The instructions were easy to follow, which made this a great project with a final result that pleased me very much. I must say that Marta did a great job for this pattern.

Here it is Little lady F with her shorts. She likes shorts very much because she likes to play freely and loved the way these looked.

Little lady M was also very pleased because although being shorts they look like a skirt 😉

I’m sure this week there will be lots of great projects being shown and I look forward to it 🙂

Have a great week!
