Hey there! So I showed off a new pattern last week, and here’s the second pattern Kelli (at True Bias just released), the Mini Emerson pattern. This again is the tester version.
I sewed up a size ten for Sweet Pea, lengthening it 1.5 inches. Kelli’s pattern runs very true to size. My 12 year old is just thin and tall.
Her waist measurements put her in a size 10, but her hip measurement is a bit bigger. To accommodate the larger hip size, I did a full seat adjustment on these shorts, and they fit her perfectly!
These shorts are reached for again and again, and I’m sure the fabric has something to do with it! I used leftover rayon challis from this dress I made myself. Now that I see these in rayon, I definitely want to make myself a pair of rayon emerson shorts!
Pattern: Mini Emerson Shorts
Fabric: Rayon Challis (from JoAnn)
Modifications: lengthen 1.5 inches, full seat adjustment to accommodate a larger hip size than the pattern is drafted for
*As a pattern tester, I received this pattern in exchange for sewing the pattern and providing feedback. Hardly any changes were made to this pattern while testing. Kelli just changed the pocket bag slightly to give it a perfect fit!
