As you may know, one of my sewing goals for 2017 is to add more separates into my wardrobe, namely bottoms. When I’m trying to put together a me-made outfit I find I have lots of dresses and tops but no bottoms to wear with them. With warmer weather creeping in down here in the south, I knew that meant lots of shorts. Another issue I found with my current wardrobe was that my only high waisted shorts were denim, and I’m trying to add more non-denim bottoms to my handmade closet as well. Something about non-denim shorts seems more grown up to me.
