I made this set using a printable pdf that’s for sale here:
It was really easy and in a great size for a vintage pattern.
To make the contrasting top and bottom strips I just cut 2 more of the waistband piece and sewed it on like bias tape before sewing any of my seams together.
You can read more about this project on my blog A Few Threads Loose:
For the shorts fabric I used a stretch cotton sateen from fabric.com that they unfortunately don’t sell anymore. As much as I love the sateen effect on cotton (ah, sateen sheets) it’s a complete cat hair magnet so I’ll probably avoid it in the future.
It's time to enter for our grand prize, an EX100 machine PLUS a trip to Nashville!
