These Oliver + S Puppet Show Shorts are the other two items I made for KCWC. I made this pattern three times last summer and loved them. This year, I made them in 12-18 month size.
The first pair is black/white woven linen from Joann. I bought up several pieces of this a few years ago and I really love it. It's quite lightweight and the weave gives it a really great texture.
I actually used the same fabric and same trim for this pair as a pair I made last year. They went with everything and Miss S wore them and wore them.
These shorts go together surprisingly quickly. There are only five pieces: the legs, pockets, pocket trim, waistband and leg binding. They are such a fun, easy sew, especially after you've made them a few times.
The next pair are made from a medium weight chambray, also from Joann a few years ago, with a trim left over from a shirt I made last month (which I will hopefully get around to posting). Again, these went together really quickly. I actually didn't participate in KCWC according to the rules. I sewed these shorts on Tuesday and Wednesday, and they took about 1 1/2 to 2 hours each. Then I sewed the Jumprope Dress on Thursday and Friday and it took probably 3 hours total. I didn't sew on Saturday or Sunday or Monday, because there was too much going on. So even though I didn't follow the rules exactly, I still got some summer things made that I needed to make, so I'd consider it a success :)
Miss S loves the pockets. She puts her cars in them :)
I'm planning to make about three more pairs of these shorts for summer. They are really so fast and fun to make, and I love the result.
