Fixing Short-Short-Shorts.

They make shorts too stinkin' short for little girls. If I left this as-is, Rose's diaper would hang out the back end if she wore it in public next summer. Then again, I couldn't pass up paying 20 cents for the shorts... I took an old piece of a skirt that is too small for me and attached it to the bottom of the shorts. I had cut off the "legs" first, but I think next time, I'll just flip the shorts around and sew through the open waistline so that there is a modesty cover under the skirt. :]

  6. So! Cute!

    One of my biggest pet peeves is the difference between boys and girls clothes. I have to be on Tart Alert when shopping for my daughter. I mean seriously! Can we not get a girls short with an inseam of more than one INCH?! Gah! How are they supposed to dig in the dirt?

    So I have abandoned the girls department when it comes to shorts - I go to the boys department. When I buy shirts, I have to get them two sizes bigger than she would wear in a boys shirt. What is going on in this country? Do we really have to sexualize a TODDLER, for crying out loud?

    Anyway. I feel you, dawg.

  7. That is really cute! Oh I wish I had a little girl to dress in pink frills. I get so excited whenever someone has a girl just so I can buy a girl outfit.
