Go To Patterns, Pattern Review - Holly Trousers and Shorts

If you have been around this blog for a while you know that I test a lot of patterns. There are a couple designers that I have tested for several times, but I was beyond giddy and excited when I reviewed an email from Andrea over at Go To Patterns with an opportunity to test the Holly Trousers and Shorts pattern that is part of the newest Pattern Anthology
I tested the size 5 shorts for my soon to be 4 year old. She wears a 4/5 in RTW clothes and the fit was perfect with just a little bit of growing room which was what I expected for the sizing chart. The shorts are made from a twill/wool type material that I've had forever. I got it for $1 a yard at Walmart about 6 years ago and I still love it and have used it a couple times before. 
There is a zipper in the side, pleats in the front, a cuff on the shorts, and a wide waistband with the option of belt loops that I omitted because the material was so thick and Abby rarely if ever wears a belt.  
It was chilly and windy when we went out to take pictures but Abby was a trooper and actually let me get all of 3 shots before she started posing herself "like the fake people at the store" as she says. 
I don't know about you, but I think she might spend a little too much time shopping. She has the poses down. haha

You can go here and check out the entire Pattern Anthology. They always have the best designers collaborating on these.

  1. WOW. Those are adorable. Love, love, love them. And, you have her styled to perfection. She looks like she stepped out of a fashion magazine. You are so talented!

    1. Thanks Amy! I'd love to take credit but the scarf and sweater were all her. She is obsessed with hoods. lol

  2. Thank you so much for testing, Erin!! I love them!

    1. We love them so much. Thanks for letting me test :)
