Awesomely cute shorts

This was my first time sewing shorts and only my second ever PDF pattern. And CKC made it so easy for this novice clothing seamstress. The instructions were detailed and easy to follow. the contrast cuffs make the shorts look anything but homemade, and the pictures helped with the construction. Looking forward to sewing may more CKC patterns fro both boys and girls.

Cute and easy pattern

This pattern is very easy to follow. For my chubby little one it runs a little small. Is an amazing pattern!
