shorts & skirt from Laura Ashley fabric

I used the pattern book below to draw a pattern for the shorts I have made. I used a pattern for trousers and cut it down...I hope they fit. The skirt didn't need a pattern, just a long strip joined with French seams, a channel at the top for the elastic and hemmed with blind hemming stitch on the machine.
I'm now working on the clothes for my second teddy bear :)
My daughters friend in South Africa has asked me to make her twin sons a stripy beany hat each so that will be next on my list. I have no idea when I will be finishing my Ohio Star quilt!

I'm off to Devon on Sunday for a few days to hopefully finish my Mothers house and to get to visit her again :)

Those are DARLING!! I love the fabrics that you used too. It sounds like your plans will keep you busy for awhile too.

I am most impressed! You created your own pattern and they look like creations one would buy in a fine department store. So cute!
