Oh Yes, All the Circus Clowns are Jealous ...

... of these lively capri shorts I made for my daughter. But hey, she is three and full of energy so I think she can pull off this look!
-
These were super easy to make. I started with an old pair of my son's jeans that were worn out in the knees. Snip. Snip. I don't know the proper way to put cuffs on, so I just pretended I was making a wide circular quilt binding and went with that approach. The belt is just a plain ol' strip belt.
When I asked my daughter what fabric she wanted, she said purple. Then the neon green was a scrap I had and I couldn't resist the opportunity to mix and match.
