Aspiring Designer- Ruby and Jack Patterns

I'm Kelly, designer at Ruby and Jack Patterns!
I have been sewing since before I can remember, thanks to my 2 precious Grandmothers for whom my shop is named.  Growing up, they constantly shared their time, patience, and passion with me~ helping me develop skills and fall in love with the process of creating. 
I feel so lucky to have a Ruby and a Jack!  I know not everyone has access to hands-on teachers.  So, I recently began designing PDF sewing patterns as a way to share with others, a little of what these 2 ladies have given me.  I try my best to write patterns with many descriptive photos and clear wording, so that a reader feels like the steps are given to them one-on-one at their sewing table. 
Today I am excited to introduce my newest design, The Perfect Cartwheel Ruffle Shorts!
The design was inspired by my feisty and feminine little girl, Emory.  She loves all things ruffled and girly.......BUT NOT as much as she loves to cartwheel, climb, and explore.
  These liven up her wardrobe a bit, beyond the general shorts and tees, AND supply the freedom she needs, to be active and adventurous :)
The Perfect Cartwheel Ruffle Shorts pattern comes in sizes 18 mos.-8, and is used with knit fabric.  These shorts are beautiful when made with one solid color or using multiple hues/prints for the ruffles. 
Here are a few more pictures from my seriously amazing group of testers, who have helped tremendously to make this pattern and tutorial the best it can be!
