I live in Orange County, CA and we’re having some pretty awesome weather right now. It’s in the upper 70’s – low 80’s, the kind of weather that calls for wearing shorts. Unfortunately, my three year old only has three pairs of shorts – jean, plaid and pajama. Having said that, we’re on an über-tight budget so I went online and searched for shorts patterns. I found this great one at julie-bird. The pattern she has up on there are a size 2T so I just made them a little longer and they fit my little boy PERFECTLY! I made two in about an hour. Now all I need are worn out shirts so I can make a dozen more – they’re perfect play shorts! Check out julie-bird’s template here.
