Adorable baby ‘bloomer’ shorts! Simplicity Pattern 1378 

How adorable are these! And who says shorts are just for summer! This little monkey loves to take her socks off, now the weathers is chillier tights are the perfect solution! And what better to go with them then these adorable little shorts. They were so easy to make and really quick too! They are part of a set really with a little sundress tunic but I love them on their own.
I’ve already made two pairs and will absolutely be making more! The pattern only goes up to age 2 I think so will have to find some bigger ones or figure out how to size these up. (any experts in pattern sizing please shout!!)

First pair (above) made in this cute white polka dot on green. It’s called Applebloom by Freespirit Designer Beads and I still have it available in my Etsy store. It’s 100% cotton and is a bargain at £4.10 per metre (I got a great price on it so I’m passing it on to you lovely folk!)  Also available in FQ or half metre.

This is basically all you cut out! Just two pieces… Easy as pie!

Next up is this gorgeous dusky pink ditsy print by Tilda fabrics. This is from the Autumn Tree range (called Ilse Lilac) and again I have plenty still available to buy. Its £15.99 per metre but you can also buy a FQ or half metre as always. These are the 12- 18 month size.

 I’ve just got some lovely needlecord which I might use for my next pair, but more autumnal! 

That’s all for now
