Play Clothes

First I want to say that I, in no way, think I am stylish in these photos but I had fun making and wearing these shorts.  You see... I don't wear shorts. The last time I wore shorts was when I was a child, which is why I made them for the "Childhood" challenge over at Sew Weekly.

My favorite activity as a child, like most children,was riding my bike... my first means of transportation.  I still enjoy riding my bike and riding my bike is the only place you will catch me wearing these shorts.  LOL.

I am excited that I made my first pockets and ironically I don't use pockets because they tend to bulge when filled and when you have a pear shape that is not a good look.

What was your favorite childhood activity?  Do you still enjoy it today?
