    Anyone do this, yet? My daughter is headed off to church camp in 2 weeks, and we got the packing list last Sunday at church. The dress code says fingertip length shorts.

    I’m heartbroken. I was making her a couple of puppet show bloomers to go with her jean shorts. Now, I have to switch gears because she now needs FIVE pairs of shorts. She’s a size 3t waist and hips, but size 6 in hight, so EVERYTHING is on the short side.

    Ugh.

    Okay, crying over.

    Sailboat shorts? Any tips? Ideas?

    I made those for my baby,I just folded the leg back and left off the cigarette split(I made them in stretch drill).

    They look very cute.

    I have wanted to girly up the Sketchbook shorts too,by stitching in crease lines,making a ‘paper bag’ waist band and perhaps adding a cuff?

    Or adding a band to the bottom leg(perhaps gathering it first) add some belt carriers and thread a sash through and tie with a bow?

    I don’t have the sketchbook pattern-yet (blushes).

    I wonder what a short ruffle around the bottom of the legs would look like in denim? Or if I cuffed them?

    This scrawnyness is ridiculous!

    I thought you made a Sketchbook shirt for your son?

    I must be mixing up my Jennys……

    Oh snap! I do have that pattern! I was thinking of Nature Walk. This is what happens when you alter 19 bridesmaid dresses and 3 wedding gowns in 5 days. I think I brain is still wrapped in tulle.

    Sashed cuffs sound fun; I have some olive green twill that would be delicious girly-fied with a sateen ribbon and carved mock-jet buttons.
