Lime Shorts

I never made woven pants before and I’ve been eyeing the Deer&Doe Chataigne Shorts for ages. So I made a practise pair of children’s shorts to get an idea of the construction process. I originally wanted to make the ankle length version (both patterns are from Ottobre kids 3/2018) but my kiddo wanted shorts. So … More Lime Shorts

Drawstring Bags
