i started these little shorts from parsley pants as a gift for a friend’s kid, but it went horribly wrong, so i wrapped them up during a recent afternoon of finishing unfinished things.
i cut them them before Rae posted her “how to turn parsley pants into shorts” tute, which would’ve been VERY helpful since i “did it wrong” and the shorts ended up uneven and then i had to chop more length off to make them even and then they would’ve been too short to give to the intended recipient…so O got them!
they’re made from robert kaufman yarn dyed black linen with echino bus pockets (i got it from Bolt long ago, my lovely sponsor Drygoods Design has green bikes and black buses in laminated cotton if you’re looking for similar!).
i think i cut out a 3T so they’re nice and roomy on O, and i love the linen for summertime.
plus in true boy fashion, he likes transportation. his shirt is car-inspired, his shorts have buses on them!
gratuitious belly shot!

I love that you had an afternoon of finishing unfinished things. I could use one of those! I had tried to turn dhorts to pants the wrong way too, I’m pretty sure I never would have figured out the right way! I love the bus fabric pockets, very cute, I’m glad he got to keep ’em!
Those are pretty cool! I wonder what will he’ll put in those pockets…
What cute shorts! That’s great that you could figure out a way to keep them, as that bus fabric is just so cute as pockets!
So cute! I’m finding it hard to be inspired to sew anything for my son, girly dresses are so much more fun! But these are adorable, making me rethink my stance!
So adorable! I had coffee with Keli of Drygoods yesterday and we were talking about how awesome you are! Were your ears burning? 🙂
those bus pockets against black essex = perfection. those are adorable!!!
Oh, that belly! Nom, nom, nom! 🙂
Woo! black essex! Goes with everything.
good lookin’! love those colors.
