Description

These are my ideal summer shorts, they are loose fitting, stylish, and oh-so comfortable! I wanted to sew a pair of ‘athletic’ shorts that were street fashion appropriate, and I love the finished result.

I used our Drawstring Gym Shorts and cut in a size 38. The fit was bang on, I was a little worried that they might have turned out a little to baggy. What really makes these shorts look more fashion instead of ‘gym wear’ is the shiny silk I used for the fabric. This project was for my June Mash Up, so be sure to check it out here for a tutorial on how I made them.
