Patternmaking class and dinosaur shorts

I’m starting an online patternmaking class today at Whipstitch and I. Couldn’t. Be. More. Excited.  Wahoo!

To contrast that, I had to drop off my shy little boy at an unfamiliar summer camp this morning.  I still have a lump in my stomach.  Last night, I made him a pair of dinosaur shorts, mostly to make myself feel better.  They are as basic as basic can be.   The whole project (including tracing the pattern) took 40 minutes.  He opted not to wear them (not surprisingly–he only rarely wears shorts), but I think he liked the print anyway.  I traced a pair of Patagonia shorts that fit him really well (size 24 months–for my 5.5 year old!).  I was going to add pockets, but then I remembered how much sand accumulates in pockets after a trip to the park and decided against it.  Our couch will thank me.
