Some ‘Swing’ Shorts

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!

I've always hand sewn but never created garments until recently. I love the retro/vintage style. Its so much more stylish and flattering than modern stuff. For my dancing escapades and folk music For sewing, craft and general blog
