Why I waited until August to make all my shorts for the summer, I do not know lol. I wish I would’ve made these earlier on in the summer! They’re the Megan Nielsen Dawn shorts. You know the pattern is already tried and true for me - I’ve made 2 pairs of wide leg jeans so far, but this is my first pair of the shorts view! I cut out my size straight, no grading, and they fit like a glove! The only adjustment I made was in sewing the side seams - I went from 5/8” seam allowance at the waist to 1/4” seam allowance at the hem, so I had a little but more wiggle room at my thighs. And I usually really prefer the button fly detail of the Dawn jeans, but I went with a zip fly for these ones becasue the print is already busy and I didn’t want to muddle it or distract from it at all. Only problem - I forgot to order a green or natural colored zipper. So I ended up using a contrasting black one. Doh. Oh well, Atleast you cant see the zipper from the outside!

I didn’t have much fabric left over, so the only thing I was able to make for P to match me was this little purse - she carried around her little mini Paw Patrol figurines in them, lol. I also pulled out this neutral striped fabric and made her this really quick and easy set. I love the apron style back!
