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 very cute - love them!!!!
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!
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
