I know its a bit early in the year for shorts. Seems odd to be sewing them while its -6 outside but I shall explain.
I bought Eliza M’s Swing, Hop Pants pattern and as I had limited material I couldn’t make two ‘full length’ pairs and needed to do a test run through. So brainwave….I’ll just make shorts.
Made facing from some spare material I had left over from another project. I also used up my only zip the right length so will have to buy another one before I can start on trousers proper. I found the project came together very quickly. Even hand sewing and pressing properly at each stage it only took me a weekend and one day.
The most time was spent on deciding on what length to make the shorts. Ended up looking a bit famous five-ish with the longer length. For more pics and detail go to my blog.
Sorry about the rubbish photo’s hope to get decent pics when the weather warms up. lol!
