Pre prep clothes for my big girl!

I thought I would make Ellyse some clothes for the start of the pre prep year. I didn't want shorts, and I didn't want a tappered kind of knicker bocker so I added four inches to the shorts in this pattern and have ended up with this. I absolutely love them I think they look great, I am just a bit worried they are a bit pjish, what do you think?

I actually did a practice pair with the fabric from my previous post, they were a little shorter than what I was after but Ellyse assures me she loves those too.

Ellyse was so excited to choose some fabric, the next pair are made of purple cupcake fabric with glitter. When I put her to bed today she asked if I was going to make her other shorts, how can I refuse? So eventhough the heat is stiffling I must fulfill her wishes and sew.

And just for a laugh, I thought Ash was a bit quiet out in the yard yesterday afternoon, after investigating this is what I found. A little boy being so helpful picking up our doggy do do. Oh I had to laugh, there is no way Ellyse would ever go near that and if I asked her where the shovel was that we used to pick up the poo I doubt she could tell me. Funny thing about the second born child.....or is it just a boy thing?

The clothes look great! I can't believe she's starting pre prep already.

Re Ashton, I think it could be as you said, the second born child. DD is so much more adventurous compared to DS and she is also not a fussy eater.

Andrea I don't think they look PJish at all - they're great.
And don't you love it when they want more - makes it all worthwhile!

Hi, I hope you don't mind me commenting. I found your blog via Little Munchkins. What a lovely outfit. I don't think they look like pj's at all.

Not PJish at all. And my Scott is very much like Ashton - there is not much that I can keep him out of ATM.

The kindy clothes look great. Amelia starts next week and I wish that I had a sewing machine that worked so I could sew something for her first special day - Might have to have a look at buying a new one!
