Description

Another pillowcase creation. This time shorts not destined for sleep time! This pillowcase was one of my Granny’s again and is either a really good old fashioned cotton or possibly linen, I’m not sure. I love the faded flowers.

      Thanks very much. It’s Burda Start 3 pattern 9743. Flared pants and shorts. They were super easy and quick and look lovely on. Mini wore them yesterday after school. I added more elastic as the pattern only called for a few inches at the back waist. Mini is skinny so I elasticated the whole of the back. She loves them!
