Bow Front Shorts for KCW

Today I made Wub a pair of bow front shorts using a pair of pants of mine that had a tear right across the bum left to right. Obviously no good for me but Hooray! super cute for her.

I used the KID short pattern from MADE. (Dana is an uber genius who actually taught me how to sew pants.) This is a great pattern so many options. I made size 7 girls flat front and modified it to add the bow detail. I almost got it right  except I ended up having to hand sew the front waist band. (boo) {That and in a fit of early morningness I accidentally sewed the back  inseam (sewed, zigzagged and topstitched) instead of the back crotch seam. Thankfully someone had shown me this video and the undoing went almost as quickly the doing.}
I have enough of this fabric left to make another pair of shorts. I'm going to make the Racer version with either pink or blue bias trim. 

Oooh! and I just realised this fits into the theme parameters because I used my old pants. Woot!
