I was contacted by the fabulous folks at Benartex to see if I would like to try out some of their fabrics. Um, Yah! Like easiest decision ever!
I perused their selections and fell in love with this line. It’s just so summery and beachy and you can’t help but smile when you look at it. Almost immediately, I had visions of a cute summer short that is quick to sew and easy to slip on and off. There’s nothing worse than trying to get shorts on a wet-skinned toddler, especially when they’ve got important things to do! Well, I guess there are worse things, but I can’t think of any right now.
When she saw that I was making her some shorts, she protested a bit. She is a skirt girl. Shorts are found few and far between in her drawer. Well, I had to get creative! I made these to have a skirt-like feel. The added ruffle just sweeps the knee and gives it just enough girli-ness to satisfy those girls that need a little extra sassiness in their wardrobe.
Benartex wants to give you some of this same fabric! How sweet are they? After the tutorial, head on over and get your chance to win some!
