Had this beautiful fabric in my stash and thinking it is the perfect fabric for a shorts. It was just enough to make the Drawstring Gym Shorts from the June issue. It is cotton sateen without stretch. I gave it my own little spin by adding fringe around the pockets leading down the sides and at the hemlines. I use one of my old shoelace for the string.
The blouse is a simple blouse that is made from misprint knit fabric. I love the dots and think it goes well with my shorts.
The shorts is so comfortable and on trend for spring/summer. I wore it out yesterday for a little street flex.
