Description

I call these shorts liars because I originally thought the pattern was from the 50’s but no, Simplicity 7688 is from 1968! Que sorpreso! But I like them anyway. And I used Colette’s infectious Sorbetto pattern to make the top with a dyed sheet and some vintage fabric for the bias tape. I’m modeling these glamorous shots in the Plaza de Las Armas in San Juan, Puerto Rico, where I spent my birthday. Find out more about that and about these shorts on my blog!

These were my first shorts, and I have to say, they turned out well! And the Sorbetto I lengthened three inches and didn’t seal the pleat to give it an airy swingy feel. I think that’s the only way to make it work for people who have more on top, honestly.

Material Notes

Cotton stretch poplin for the shorts from Joanns. The shirt was a bedsheet I dyed with idye in Sunshine Yellow and vintage cotton for the bias tape.
