Features for your Sensory Child

  • The seams are worked on the outside so that the inside is smooth and has no scratchy itchy seams or labels.
  • The shorts are loose and comfy with elastic waistband.
  • The pocket contains ribbon tabs – great for attaching all those ‘mustn’t lose’ bits and pieces
  • Make the shorts in recycled fabric (mum or dads old jeans, or a charity/thrift shop find), to avoid the use of stiff new fabrics and also save the planet.
