what a week- too much work, too much poorlyness {child & dog} definitely too much rain & not nearly enough sewing for the spring kcwc over at elsie marley's, there has been a little sewing though, i had tried to be organised & last week had pre-washed & ironed some of the fabrics i wanted to use, i had also drawn out some of the patterns & had cut them out ready to go, first up i've made a little pair of shorts, from the 'mademoiselle' pattern book i've had for a while, i went with the 100cm size & used a thin cotton drill with a fine 'minty & white' stripe {which had been picked up very cheaply from fabric land when we last visited brighton} 
this was my fabric choice, not little O's, but i have promised her a pair in the pink floral fabric she chose! although i do think she'll wear these & providing the weather warms up a little, they will be great for our summer camping trips
i actually didn't think i'd like these as i was putting them together, but once finished they are actually quite sweet - girly but perfect for mucking about in, which is exactly what she did whilst i was trying to get a photo of them on her! the pattern was easy to follow & although the book has a few less step by step pictures than the japanese pattern books, it was far easier to translate {even with my school book french!}
{not so short} shorts!
