Thanks Julie! I think I will do this pair of shorts without the crotch shaping & see how that works.

I decided to go ahead and make the longies instead of shorts and I got a leg done! Full of flaws and weirdness but I don't care! The color is off, what looks dark green in the pics is actually blue.

Heather and Amy, you're welcome! I had a lot of help too. Once you get the hang of it, it goes much easier the next time around and you understand the sts better.

Amy, my first pr turned out ok. There were some issues (esp w/ the short rows, but I think I've mastered those now!) though. Yours are going to look great! Are you on the second leg?

OK, I finished... sadly I think it took me so long she grew, lol. They're a wee bit tight. But I finished!

Wow! I love those! in a few months I can see you squeezing her into those like we did with our jeans back in the '80s. :LOL And they will fit the next baby perfectly, I bet.
