If you recall, a while back I made these Sailor Pants for my darling niece Sienna’s first birthday.

Unfortunately, Sienna doesn’t live near us…which means I have yet to see her in them…doh! With temperatures warming up (ummm….try STEAMING HOT! Lol), I thought I would try my hand at these pants again.

Turning them into shorts, I added a cute contrasting fabric band at the bottom with side slit. This idea came from J Crew, whom I continually thank for inspirational ideas from their spam e-mails – lol.

I am thrilled with the result, and how could I not be – they are linen of course – and you know how I feel about linen (*sigh – love).

The best part is that my daughter loves them…the fact that they are pink may play some small role in that :).
