This post is looooooonnnggg over due! This was one of my first makes for #theyearofslowsewing and I can’t believe I’m just now getting around to share it with you. I had so much fun with this project. It was a great one to start the new year off with as it brought me out of a bit of a creative rut.Click here if you would like to continue reading
Welcome to the third and final installment of my Chi Town Chino shorts series. Its been quite hot here so these have been on steady rotation. I do love summer but I think I’m ready to pull out my button down shirts and trouser pants.. you? Keep reading for all the details on these short handmade shorts.
Welcome to Part 2 of my Chi town Chino party. If you missed part 1, you can visit last weeks here. This week’s version is another longer pair in linen. Only this time we are going a bit darker. These shorts are so light and comfy – perfect for this super hot weather we’ve been having. Keep reading for more details!
Get ready for a handmade shorts blast! For the next three weeks I will be sharing with you my three (yes three!) most recent makes – all of which are shorts. Basically I was looking for holes in my closet and found that I’d like to have some more non-denim shorts… because now that I’m over 30 I felt the need for some “grown up shorts” – if that’s even a thing. Keep reading to learn more about this first pair, a slightly longer crisp tan linen set.
Time for tap shorts round 2! I already talked a lot about this pattern in my previous post about making the fly front version, so this post will be more picture heavy. To read the specifics about all the fit adjustments I made, why I chose this pattern and why I made three of them, visit that post here.
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.
