KristyLynn Ruffle Bum Shorties Review & Giveaway

KristyLynn is an Etsy shop that sells crochet patterns and pre-made items for women and babies. The stay-at-home-mum owner recently sent us a pair of Ruffle Bum shorties to try along with a pretty flower pin that intrigues my daughter. Made of blue and yellow yarn, the shorties have a distinct style of their own with a braided draw string and ruffles around the legs and across the bum.

She offers a variety of other interesting patterns including beautiful cardigans, baby leg warmers, and blankets. Custom orders are accepted, and her patterns are both inexpensive ($3-$7) and offered in a range of difficulty levels. The already-made items are colorful, well planned out, and useful. Since the shorties are a wool item, it does need to be lanolized periodically. The benefits of wool include temperature regulation (for both hot and cold) and anti-microbial properties, making the effort lanolizing worth it.

The shorties that we tested will fit a multitude of sizes which is nice. My daughter has a round bum though (I always joke that I’m a “white girl with a ghetto booty”) which ended up stretching the back of the shorties more than I think the designer intended, allowing for wider gaps between the yarn strands. This did allow for more moisture seepage than usual. I would suggest using a trim diaper and only using crocheted shorties during the day to avoid leaks. You can purchase the pattern for these shorties for $5.00 by clicking here.
KristyLynn is offering a pair if striped shorties for free to one of my readers! They are a size 0-3 months, 16.5″ hip, 11″ rise, and have a 2 1/4″ inseam. In light blue and white colors, these will be perfect for your new baby girl or boy. Can’t wait? You can buy the pattern for them for $5.00 here.
If you’d like to win thses, head on over to KristyLynn’s shop and tell me either one item she already has that you’d like, or an idea for a future pattern that she could create. The winner will be chosen on August 7th around 1530 hours, EST. Be sure to include your email address with each entry!
