These shorts have some really great details that not only give it style but also make it even more wearable for your little ones.  The waistband is a flat front with an elastic back which is especially great for skinny mini’s like my kids who never seem to keep their pants up.  You can add a fun accent fabric for the pocket lining as well which is a great way to add a bit of fun to the shorts.

Amy’s instructions are clear and really easy to follow leaving you with an amazing finished product.  Because sewing around curves can sometimes be a bit daunting (I know I usually have the same face as Sophie when I think about sewing around a curve)  But don’t worry Amy gives really great tips for the best way to sew around the scallops.  I learned a few new things in the section that I will be sure to use the next time I am sewing a curve.

The Seaside Scallop Shorts come in sizes 3 months to 12 years and are easily customizable to your little one by adjusting the length of the elastic.
