I'm Guest Posting for Shorts on the Line Today

Have you checked out the great summer event called Shorts on the Line hosted by Imagine Gnats, Designs by Sessa, and Small + Friendly?  If you haven't yet, you should!

I'm guest posting there later today about these cute scalloped edge shorts I made, and a tutorial I put together so you can make some, too!

A few weeks ago, I had just purchased a load of fabric for a steal at my local fabric store's semi-annual sale when I saw the cutest Oliver + S scalloped edge skirt hanging in the window.  Sadly, they didn't have the patterns in yet (not that I had any money left to buy one that day), but I looked it up as soon as I got home and decided I would eventually purchase the pattern (still haven't though).

In the mean time, my friend Rachael at Imagine Gnats invited me to be a guest blogger for the Shorts on the Line sew along.  Immediately, I knew I wanted to make my own scalloped edge shorts, and I decided to make a tutorial on how I did it in case anyone else wanted to make a pair too.

Here's the pair of scalloped edge shorts I made for my guest post at the Shorts on the Line sew along.  These are great little shorts that add some cute variety to an otherwise plain pair of shorts.

Ella really has enjoyed wearing hers--even in 102 degree heat!  She was quite the trooper the day we took these pictures, and she didn't even complain a single time.

Here she is in her 4th of July look with the scalloped edge shorts...

And here she is with her cupcake top and scalloped shorts on.  I think she's ready for a party or at the very least ice cream and cake!

And the last look of the day, just having a casual stroll looking at beautiful flowers!

I made the cupcake top and the last top, too, called the Pleated Penny. Check back soon because I'll be blogging about those tops and how you can make those, too!

Don't forget to check out all the other great shorts ideas this week and next at Shorts on the Line!
