Gotta know when to fold 'em..

For day 4 and 5 of the Kids Clothes Week Challenge I spent way too much time on a pair of failed shorts for Lola.  Sometimes I can be a little stubborn. Or maybe it's denial. I should have walked away long before I did. I (tried) to make my own pattern but the proportions were not right and they are way too long.

I also didn't sew the right pieces together so one leg of the shorts is bigger and longer than the other.  Nice.

Refusing to let the poor shorts die, I thought "What if I made a nice large cuff?  That might fix them!"

Umm, no. It won't.

Poor shorts. My mom must be proud. Have you ever insisted on finishing a project that just was not going to work? 

I did cut out and iron the next dress I will make for Lola. Here's hoping for success tomorrow!

Thanks for reading!
