The outfit chosen by Chappy yesterday to go to a birthday party was embarrassing. I came close to disowning him. Navy shorts with big green frogs made way back in Jan 2010 (you can imagine how tight they are now) and a red striped shirt. So fashion forward. When I went to find something less assaulting on the eye, I discovered the poor child had very few clothes that fit him. Why do they always grow?
Perfect chance to start the challenge I set myself a couple of weeks ago and promptly forgot about. MIP’s Long Board Shorts were in order given the 25C winter days that we are currently having. I made size 8 (because that’s how old he is) but with 9 length.
Those fish were a huge pain to match up and while they are far from perfect they’ll do. It’s a fabulous pattern, taking no time to whip up. I especially love the soft ribbed waistband as does he. I left off the knee patches because, although hard to believe, my boys don’t tend to go through the knees of their shorts.
Great for a rugby match against your dad and siblings.
Until your sister kicks it down the hill and it all ends in tears.
Ten points if you can spot the ball.
