nora and etta are active little girls. very active little girls. but they are also quite girly and like to wear dresses and skirts.
which leads to situations like this...
i had never made a skort before, and honestly i was afraid the construction of the shorts would be really complicated. so i was pleasantly surprised when it came together perfectly.
he only part that was tricky was the back elastic, which i made too loose. but that is easily adjusted.
the girls brought the skorts when they visited us last summer. it was the perfect attire for helping pick a seven pound zucchini vic and i had grown.
i remember when this child weighed less than this zucchini.
we ended up making a chocolate zucchini cake, or as my nieces called it 'yummy yucky cake'.
