Tess Tulip Shorts ~ Bella Sunshine Designs

I tested these adorable tulip shorts by Bella Sunshine Designs this week.


I just love sewing kids' clothing because it gives me almost instant gratification.  Also, toddlers are not aware if there are fit issues and they don't have areas of their body they are trying to disguise.  Because I do, and sometimes it's exhausting!!  And toddlers are exhausting, so at least my daughter isn't complicated when it comes to clothing - YET.

But I digress...


The Tess Tulip Shorts* have a short option (think booty shorts) and an equally adorable longer version.  There is an option for pockets, if your little Peggy Sue is into that.  But the thing I love most about this pattern is how fun it looks with trim!

I used some white piping around the edge of Cici's shorts and I love how polished it makes them look.


The shorts are nice and flat in the front and the waistband has encased elastic in the back.  You can't tell, but I used some elastic from an old pair of undies in those shorts. Ummm...Goodwill or scrap pile? Scrap pile it is.  Can't give away perfectly good notions!


Anyway...the pattern is super cute, a fast sew, and the instructions are very clear and easy to follow.
