15 Shorts

I'm going bonkers over shorts...
bubble shorts...
sailor shorts...
short shorts...
Hey, did you get your $10 Old Navy shorts? Shorts...
Yah... shorts.
Yes, I got me some bubble shorts, sailor shorts, no on the short shorts, yes on the Old Navy shorts and now... (*trumpet horns*) the Prefontaine shorts by Made With Moxie!
Oh God, when I saw these babies pop up all over the internet, my eyes nearly popped out of their sockets.  Having a good portion of my young existence in the eighties, I had my share of Dove shorts and to be able to bring it back is nothing short of RAD.
I have a bit of polka dot fabric from Lecien both in green and blue (which I used some HERE) and I thought it would be perfect to use here. Lala's doin' a bit of stretching in honor of these shorts and look... look at that yummy little belly. *gah* I just wanna give her zerberts on her belly all day.
One polka dot short down and one more to go...
I had left over fabric from the When We Were Young Series and some red piping. Aren't the buttons cute? The pattern is from Sweet Girls Clothes, pattern Z. A great book to have, btw. 
I can definitely see making some shorts in a wool blend for the fall/winter season. 
"Stella, where's the pockets?"
Cracks me up when she struggles to find her pockets. LOVE it! Gotta have pockets... where else can she put her half-eaten grapes and rocks?
Two more going into the Shorts On The Line, Flickr group! Have you entered? It's not too late!

Venus, last month I made short from pattern Z too, but my little model is reluctant to wear shorts recently...so I don't blog it but I just uploaded it onto my pinterest board, please check it out: http://pinterest.com/yekapinter/i-made/
    (I postpone to make harem pants too since OC doesn't want to wear my handmade "London Bus" pant) :(.
