These are great!  I am going to make Sailor Pants this year.  I am.

Ooooh...now you are giving me an idea!  I bet these would be really cute as a pair of '30s 'Beach Pyjamas' if I extended them to be pants and made them up in a drapey fabric.  Thank you!

These are adorable! I've never been able to wear shorts though, I usually stick with dresses to hide my big hips... Such a shame cause these are just too cute!

To be perfectly honest, I'm not particularly comfortable in shorts either, but I'm trying to get over it.  I think a lot of what we think we "should" and "shouldn't" do is in our heads, and no one else notices!  

I put these on and went "Ack!" but braved up and wore them and you look at them and say 'adorable' and I have to rethink where my ideas are coming from.  So thank you!

Holy crap these are adorable!

Love them! I'd love to make these, but worry if I'm too busty - but perhaps this is just in my head too?? :D

Thank you Shona!

Morgan, how could being too busty possibly make these not work for you?  I think it would balance them beautifully!

Comment by Morgan Sin on January 29, 2012 at 3:01am

Don't worry, I'll be trying them anyway they're just too cute! They are days when the attention of having a busty pin-up figure just gets too much! Haha :P
