Dresses and Shorts

I made a few dresses for the girls from Simplicity 2437. They all seem to have grown in the last month and suddenly everything from last year is way too short. The same size for all three, just shorter for Eva's dress. I added some of my favourite pockets (Oliver & S Puppet Show shorts or Jump Rope Dress) in contrasting fabric.







I think these might be the best shorts ever. Red and White spots - how could they not be. Pattern - Oliver & S Puppet Show shorts.

Wow, I really really love those shorts. So cute, and not too short.

The dress are also adorable with the contrasting pockets. It would be easy enough to make them longer with the contrasting fabric when they get too short...

So lovely, especially the polka dot shorts. I have that pattern, but haven't made it yet - must get cracking, they are really cute and would be perfect for a toddler in summer.

Happy New Year, I hope 2012 is a great one for you.
