Description

I love these shorts!!!
I found this floral cotton in the remnants pile at my local fabric shop and HAD to have it… I love how bright and happy it is =)
I used the Jane shorts pattern as a base, lengthened the legs so i could turn them up and added a bow belt (which is just a long rectangle sewn on to the back of the shorts)
Did I mention that I love them??

Material Notes

less than a metre of floral cotton and some elastic for the waistband

    Such a good idea! I’ve been hankering after a pair of shorts for the Summer myself, I might have to steal your idea!
