Tampa, United St...
So, my husband and I recently moved to South Carolina from Florida for a job. On the weekends we go exploring Charleston…there is so much to do here! From historical downtown to the old plantations….I’m definitely going to need some cute shorts for summer! So here is the first of many to come!
For these I used Simplicity Easy to sew pattern 2258( wanted to start simple…they are my first shorts you know.) They are simple with elastic! I added the ties ends from the skirt in the pattern so my shorts wouldnt look like granny pants. I love how they turned out! Super fun fabric was a b-day gift from a gal pal..
Lightweight and comfy! Perfect for porch swings, Sweet tea, and all things summertime brings!
Some sort of cotton blend…1 and 1/2 yds
elastic and a coupla buttons.
