Lots of Options!

I was an early tester for this pattern, and had fun figuring out which options to choose to make this cute outfit. It can be a bibbed skirt, bibbed shorts, or substitute a waistband for the bib to have a skirt or shorts. There are lots of details in this pattern, like plenty of pockets, gathered legs, belt loops, and straps that can either be fabric or ribbon. You can also use all one fabric, or use a contrasting fabric for accents. The instructions for this pattern are easy to follow, and my finished bibbed shorts were a perfect fit.
