I used the Oliver+S patten: class picnic blouse + shorts. It's a really good patten, easy to follow and understand and everything fit together perfectly at the end. There were some moments where I did wonder how on earth it would all fit together and look like the picture, but in the end it did. I am now a big fan of these pattens and I will definitely get some more (when I have time).
My big girl is so happy with them she hasn't taken them off since I sawed the last stitch.
I bought some light weight denim for the main part and I used some leftover liberty print fabric for the edging. I made a size 10 which is a little big, but the back has an adjustable elastic that pulls then together nicely.
I hope she doesn't grow too fast so that these shorts will fit her for a while.
