It's hard to be making summer clothes when the weather refuses to be summer. But I've managed somehow.
The two white pairs are for wearing under skirts and dresses. The colorful pairs are meant for wearing on their own, if I have willing recipients. The girls were highly skeptical of these while I was cutting them out, but the great appeal of an easy garment kept me going.
The long pairs go to the knees, or a little lower and the waists are a little below the navel. If I make more pairs, I'll shorten them to a normal shorts length, as I did for the white pairs.
The verdict: Sara loves the blue pair. Grace refuses to put on the striped shorts, but loves the white pair. "They are SO comfortable."
So, now I have requests for more colors.
