Ok, I'm giving away one of my big secrets - I have had the best luck finding bulk notions at thrift stores - large quantities of button elastic, elastic of all widths and laces. So that's where I found it though I bet you could buy it online too.

Such cool matching shorts for the young ones and a fab skirt for mommy!

Karen -- Where do you buy the button elastic? I've seen it in rtw for kids, but never thought of using it in sewing. It really helps resolve fitting issues with kid's clothing.

The result is adorable. You can't get anything that cute at Target, but at Target's prices, it's difficult to justify the time and trouble to sew something. Well, ok, I did sew up some Lightning McQueen licensed cotton (from JoAnn's) pj bottoms this weekend. You prove that the right fabric and pattern -- plus your clever tips -- makes the effort worthwhile.

Ha! I used to dress my boys in brights too to make them easy to keep track off. Love the shorts!
