Flowers and a Pearl - Shorts

Added Aug 24, 2013

I made these shorts from an old bed sheet. The fabric is surprisingly thick and not sheer at all :)
The shorts feature front pockets (turned out too small..), a thin waistband, green topstitching, an invisible side zip, hook&eye closure and a cute pearl bead on top.
I really like the way these shorts look, but when I put them on the fit at the front isn’t so good so I might work on them some more…

    Very nice. I love seeing bedding turned into clothes! I feel your pain on the fitting, though- I have such issues getting the front right, too.

      Thanks :) I loved using these sheets- they were just lying around the house, taking up room and not being in use, and now they are SHORTS! :D

      Thank you! I changed this bedsheet’s destiny in life. How cool is that ;)

      Yeah, you gave it a chance to go out and see the world (providing you were them, which you definitely should), it will be forever grateful! ;)
