Welcome to day two of Kid’s Clothes Week! Are you starting to get into things? Maybe even have a few finished garments under your belt? If you are wondering how people finish things so fast, I have one word for you: shorts!

day two: kcw june 2015 // featured garments

1. national park shorts by Carolyn 2. melon by Mel 3. ishi by Shivika 4. short orange bus tour by Ornella 

Shorts can be crazy quick, like three seams quick! I’m pretty smitten with the national park shorts Carolyn made, pictured above. It shows that simple can be stunning too. And she nailed the TRAVELING theme! The camper fabric Eva used to make her son’s button up shirt (pictured below) is perfect for the theme too. The striped green piping takes the whole project up a notch.

    Yay! I’m so glad you loved my National Park shorts! Looking at the different parks on them was a great trip down nostalgia lane for me. My family camped all over the US for summer vacations, choosing a region we hadn’t been to each summer.

      Those shorts are great! We just returned from Acadia and met a family that was doing just what you described.

        Very cool! I need to get back to Acadia!!!!! Yellowstone and Glacier are on the list first though. My son is old enough know that camping just might be feasible.
