Show & Tell: Pixie Shorts for Elfen Treasures

Hello Lovelies,
Show & Tell Thursday's

In general I don't find a lot of time for clothes sewing.  So when the opportunity arose to do some pattern testing for Lisa from Big Little, I was in! There is nothing quite like committing to something like this, to get one started! And it helps to be a bit of a fan too ;)

They were easy to whip up and fun to make - even an inexperienced clothes sewer like me didn't struggle with it.  Confident beginner is the skill level I would assign to this item.  The wee pockets were essential as we never seem to have enough vessels for all the treasures that are collected... I can confirm that they can hold quite a few seashells! Of course, you can sew them without the pockets if you chose to.  Our pair are from denim for year round versatility and they look adorable with or without tights!  Of course you could make them in heavier fabric for winter or something light-weight for summer.  Oh so many options and possibilities!

They were well received by my little model which is always helpful. And I know I am biased but seriously - those shorts on my little treasure... too much cuteness!  I must get around to whipping some up for my two bigger girls ; )

Now for some happy news.  Lisa is offering 15% of the Pixie Pants Pattern and the Pixie Shorts Pattern for the duration of the blog hop.  All you need is the coupon code PIXIEPANTS15 (valid until Tuesday 23 September).  Be sure to check back in on the Big Little blog on Tuesday for a giveaway too.
