Bronx, New York,...
On Tuesday, I woke up and decided that I was going to sew my very first garment! This impulsion came out pretty cute, I think :) My mother gave me some thrifted linen fabric, and after three hours and much help from Alden, your friendly Community Manager, I proudly held up my very first pair of handmade shorts.
I love this pattern because it has a slight vintage feel, and was pretty easy to make. I’ve already gotten a few requests from various friends (those freeloaders), but will probably make a few pair just for myself before summer’s out :)
