You guys, I have some exciting news!! Sew Caroline and Simple Life Pattern Company have teamed up to offer a collection of mommy and me patterns! Sew Caroline has taken some of SLPCo’s favorite patterns and made them for mommy, while SLPCo took some of Sew Caroline‘s favorite patterns to make them in kid sizes! How exciting is that?
I was lucky to test Tammy’s Tulip Shorts for this collaboration and I’m excited to show them to you! These are going to be so great for hot summer days! And I can’t wait to make some matching pairs for my girls!
Aren’t these so cute? They can be made with medium weight cotton fabrics or knits, so you can have a lot of fun with these shorts!
I had a lot of fun picking out fabric for these test pairs. i couldn’t decide! Which is how I ended up with 3 pairs of shorts! And they’re such a quick sew, especially if you use premade bias tape as I did with these pairs. My favorite pair, though?
Pineapples! I was super excited to find this pineapple fabric in the novelty cottons. I’ve already worn this pair twice! (which is a lot considering we haven’t had many “shorts weather” days so far)
Here’s a detail shot of that cute bias trim. You can have a lot of fun with the trim, by using decorative trim like pom poms or lace. Or make your own bias trim out of a coordinating fabric.
Also included in the collection is the Magnolia Shorts, which I’ve previously shared with you. I’m super excited about sewing up some of the girls version of the Magnolia Shorts, particularly for my girly girl who always wants to wear skirts and dresses, but needs the modesty of shorts.
But really you must go check out the whole collection! There are so many mommy and me options to choose from! I’m excited to get sewing!!!
