First, congrats on being a mom! You look great. The shorts look really good on you. You should wear shorts, why not? Funny that you would have to shorten the front crotch. This pattern almost cut me in half they were so short. I guess that's why we sew, so we can all get it right. Yes, make more. Those TNTs will come in handy for a quick sew-up during nap time.

Ooh, very nice. Gret review and really helpful link to the full butt adjustment post. I so relate to your last sentence - it's convinced me that I should try these!
