Dream Big Ruffled Shorties Set (Large)

DreamBig
$29.00 (CAD) per unit

I dyed the yarn for these shorties in the winter with colour-fast Easter Egg dye. The colours didn’t come out at all like I’d planned, but I loved the muted tones that I ended up with. A mix of light blue, light orange, and some purple make these an airy summer colour combo. The base yarn is Briggs & Little Softspun – it’s turning out to be a great soaker base as it’s a thicker worsted, durable for toddlers, stretchy but springy, and seemingly not easily to felt.

The yarn has been sitting in my stash since, waiting for inspiration. When I found this t-shirt at Old Navy a couple of weeks ago, the inspiration struck! The colours go magnificently together. The waistband of the shorties is merino to continue the softness factor, and the legs have a seed-stitch cuff.

I will add a hot air balloon feature on the the back of the shorties for no extra charge – just let me know what colours you’d like. The shorties have been washed in wool wash and I can lanolize for no extra charge before I mail them.
