Bubble Pocket Shorts

LOVE this one! I'm so pleased with how these turned out. I hemmed and hawed for a very long time (months!) over whether to buy the Bubble Pocket Shorts pattern from Elegance & Elephants - Saturday I finally did!  And very happy I did - I sewed these up during naptime yesterday.

Pattern: Bubble Pocket Shorts by Elegance & Elephants
Fabric: scraps of blue twill leftover from FIL's clown costume! Inner waistband is a scrap from a skirt of mine.
Size: 6m-12m
Mods: The only thing I did different from the pattern was to bind the legs with the cuff pieces, instead of sewing the cuffs on doubled and flipping the raw edges inside. I like the finish much better that way.

Not the best photo, but she adores the "pottets".

The lilacs are so pretty right now! Every time I step outside into a cloud of soft scent I just wish there were a way to make my house smell like that - but every "canned" scent I've smelled gives me a headache... I'll just have to enjoy it outdoors!
