We are trying to stay optimistic that there will be summer here this year so I keep
sewing summer clothes for the kiddos.
Now it was Viktors turn, and he wanted shiny shorts!
Oh boy how am going to pull that off, I thought!
So together we looked through my fabrics and he found this great cotton + steel xoxo in green
I bought from Miss Matatabi.
So green and gold shorts I made.
The only thing was that I barely had half a meter of this fabric
and it was so close being enough for the shorts.
But you either have enough or you don't!
We started digging through fabrics again and then I remembered another cotton+stell fabric
I had, Arrows in navy metallic, which I bought from The Laughing House. It is sold out there now.
This is a simple pattern with lot of options and possibilities to make them your own style.
I made them last summer as well, such a quick little project.
Ok, lets turn to his shirt. I was going to make him a tank to go with his shorts.
Like I said we still have hope that summer will come to us. I didn't have any solid color knit
in my stash that could go with those busy shorts and in Norway stores are closed on Sundays.
I really wanted to take these photos yesterday though so I could post this today.
As he was trying on his new shorts I noticed that the undershirt he was wearing was actually
the perfect navy color so I decided to just spruce it up a bit with some gold fabric paint I had.
We love how it turned out, even though the shirt is old and worn and kind of stretched out.
I guess when you are as good looking as this young dude you make everything look good!
