little birdie shorts & tee
Anyone else out there have a teeny tiny waisted one? Well, my youngest is certainly that. So besides her wearing the same shorts as last summer, I decided I need to make her a pair. And with a coordinating super cute top, why not?
I came across this fabric at Crafty Planet
a while back and it is so super cute! Just cutesy enough for my girl.
I traced a pair of her existing shorts and added a couple of Rae pockets
! Yep, I’ll just nickname it that, the Rae pocket. Otherwise known as the Pleated Pocket tutorial
. Just sized it down a bit and did a gather instead of the pleat, that’s all.
Of course I did manage to sew the pockets on in a weird location, so I had to rip them off and sew them back on, this time while the shorts were already sewn together – but it can be done.
The tee came from target and yep, just added a teeny patch to the front. I left the edges of the polka dot raw so it would fray up a bit for extra cuteness.
