My little niece came to my house last weekend. She insisted to take a picture in front of the framed cross stitched Japanese lady hanging on the wall in my living room. She likes the cross stitch very much because it was made by her mum before she was born.
She told me she likes the broad shorts I made for her cousin brother. She asked me to make one for her too. At home this girl likes to wear T-shirt and shorts.
After she knew that I am willing to sew one for her, she was happy and said : “ You know, I have grown up and some of my shorts are too small to fit already ! Do you mind to make more than one for me ? “
I laughed and answered : “ No problem ! How many pairs do you want ? Five ? "
She raised her three little fingers and answered : “ THREE will be enough !”
On Tuesday night, I finished sewing four ( instead of three )pairs of broad shorts for her.
I drafted the paper pattern with seam allowance. I just laid the paper pattern on the fabric and cut out without tracing. Quick, easy and fun to sew! Less than three hours, I completed four shorts with elasticated waist .
My little niece cycled to my house to get her shorts this evening . She likes the shorts I made for her. I took some pictures of her with the shorts on. She is a real cutie, sweet and mischievious !
