Description

Two new additions to my summer wardrobe!

It was my first time making shorts and sewing with jersey fabric, but both turned out to be easier than expected. The patterns are self-drafted and used cotton fabrics, perfect for summer heat. I just couldn’t resist that retro bicycle print!

    I’ve never seen you in anything but dresses. You look great in these shorts. I love the print and style. Well done for tackling jersey for the first time as well.

      Thank you!
      Yes I am quite addicted to dresses and find them much easier to wear than shorts and even skirts. My new mantra for the holidays though is to sew more separates instead of so many dress..;)

    That is such a cute fabric find. Really neat shape to the shorts too… though that probably has a lot to do with your figure! :-)
