Yesterday, after trying yet another church, we decided to head over to Walmart before coming home. We don't have a Walmart in our valley so I don't get to go very often. We needed napkins and I wanted a bag of chips to go with the chicken we were having for lunch.
Since we were already there I thought we should look for some shorts for Lorna. She's outgrown the ones we bought last summer and really wants a few pairs since the temperatures have been climbing into the high 90s and even reaching 100 lately. What we found was frustrating. All the shorts were really short and tight. They didn't seem to have any of the shorts that I remember buying as a kid, the kid that were not form fitting and came down to just above your knee.
Last year we had a difficult time finding shorts too. We ended up buying ones that were labeled "school shorts". They were made so they would conform to school dress codes but could be altered on the weekends to be shorter. This year we haven't been able to find anything even remotely like that within our small budget. So I guess I'll have to go through the fabric we have here and make her some. I really enjoy sewing but can't seem to find enough time to even finish what I have cut out, let alone start a new project!
