  1. This is the first time I have seen the pattern for the boys shorts. I make the dress out of the t-shirts as well. I'll have to start collecting adult t's for the boy's shorts. Thanks for sharing this information. I will be linking up with the dresses. I will be glad when yard sales start, you can really find some nice and cute t-shirt then.

  2. A busy lady you are. Well, I might just have a few dresses to link up as well. Might have to make a few boy shorts. :)
