Today I'm proudly joining in with the Pixie Pants/Shorts blog hop celebrating the release of 2 new exciting patterns by Lisa of Big Little.

I was so excited when I heard that Lisa from Big Little had put the call out for pattern testers – I’ve long been a fan of Lisa’s blog and beautiful design aesthetic. So I eagerly put my hand up and said “Pick me, pick me!”

And lucky for me Lisa did and I was given the opportunity to test these Pixie Shorts. The shorts are a delightful bubble/ bloomer style, they have optional pockets and the pattern ranges from teeny-tiny newborn size to 10 years!

For Isabelle's I sewed a size 4 years from spotty chambray fabric with contrasting floral pockets. For Pipi I made size 2 in a mustard yellow corduroy with a couple of buttons on the waistband for show. I love both pairs and am especially happy that Pipi's pair fit over her big cloth nappy so well!

Lisa's pattern is great with good instructions and pictures and the sew is pretty quick and simple.

(Lisa has also designed this Pixie Pants pattern which a slightly longer style and equally as cute; and something I can't wait to try.)


Great news! Lisa is offering 15% of the Pixie Pants Pattern here and the Pixie Shorts pattern here for the duration of the blog tour. All you need is the coupon code PIXIEPANTS15, valid until Tuesday 23 September.
Be sure to check back in on the Big Little blog on Tuesday for a giveaway too!

Love both pairs, but those yellow with the buttons - simply delicious (if you can say so about a sewn item)!
