Sycamore Shorts for Milla

I really enjoyed showing off my poroporo blouse last week for Milla, it spurred me on to spend an hour on Wednesday night whipping up these little sycamore shorts. [link to free and easy pattern!]

I made them with chambray, which was my first time using. Its so light and so easy to work with, I think I'll definitely be making more out of this fabric! 

If you're just starting out sewing this is a really great pattern to try out. I found all the instructions to be very thorough and easy peasy. And you're only having to work with two pattern pieces. Score. Do try it and let me know if you do!

After I had cut out my fabric it took about an hour to iron and sew all the pieces. MrMoo left for indoor cricket and by the time he got back I had a pair of shorts to show him! It was like magic!

There is still lots of fabric left over from what was required so I'll definitely be making more, maybe some little ones for Katie?

Milla keeps telling me she has apples in her pocket. Super duper cute.

[[I thought I'd try and make "making something once a week" a regular feature on my blog. Hopefully it'll spur on my sanity, motivation and blogging regularity! Thanks for stopping by each time xxx]]


  1. What a fabulous set of shorts. Be careful to wash chambray before sewing - it can be nasty and shrink after a wash... (I speak from experience... )

    1. Thanks for the heads up Maxine! I was all of my fabric as soon as it enters the house! That way I know everything in my shelves is ready to use :) x

  2. Very cute Sophie - the pockets are adorable!


Wowee! Thanks for leaving a comment :)
