Short Shorts

There is a blogging revolution going on at the moment and we're joining in!

I have been dying to try out this pattern in its original form for a while, but Dee's short shorts revolution was just the trigger that I needed to get me to take action!
You will no doubt recognise the pattern as I have used variations on it here and here. This time I (almost) faithfully followed the pattern! The only change that I made was to add poppers between the legs to make nappy changes easier with a very wriggly boy!
Ha Ha! Got to be faster if you want to catch me, Mum!
The shortalls were made with the off cuts of the fabric used for Mr Tartankiwi's shorts; left over red cord from when I made newborn trousers and a random bit of plain quilting fabric that I had lying around. (Don't you love it when you can complete a project using only what you have in house!)

He looks super cute in his new get up don't you think?!?
A little unstable but strutting his stuff like a pro!
Just look at those grubby chubby knees, seriously, what's not to love!?!

I'm sharing with the lovely and talented people over at Creative Friday.


  1. Those are the ones he was wearing yesterday aren't they? I thought they were just gorgeous! Loved my boys in dungarees at that age, though most of them were longs for winter.

  2. Great fabric combo and the buttons perfect. As you know I am very fond of boys in rompers and overalls.

  3. Oh my gosh - gorgeous!! I find it so frustrating that the only shorts I can find for my toddler go down to his ankles! If I had half your sewing skill, I'd totally be joining in this revolution :)

  4. These shorts (and knees) are adorable, thanks for sharing


  5. Brilliant - and such cute photos!!

  6. very cute, love the star buttons

  7. These are fabulous!!! The piping looks great as does the red star fabric against the blue. Good idea to add the openings for nappy changes...
