City gym shorts from The Purl Bee

I know I’m a little late to this party, but I have come to accept most projects I want to work on have already been around a while, and I have been lusting after them the entire time. So like I said, anything and everything that inspires me, or I’m drawn to, I’m going to try. Anyway, remember all that bias tape I made? Perfect for these cute shorts from The Purl Bee, the awesome thing about this project is that not only is this a free pattern, it comes in different sizes for BOTH adults and kids! How generous is that? Thank you Corrine.

Brussels is only a 90 minute flight from Prague so it didn’t matter that we were leaving on Saturday afternoon, we’d had have all night to spend at Sebastien’s bar (that’s Yannick’s brother),have time to sleep it off on Sunday and hung with the family, a small trip to Brugge on Monday and we’d be back in Prague on Tuesday, short and sweet.
