I tend to make a new pair of shorts each summer and always using Sewaholic Thurlow as my pattern. I know, I am a creature of habit! These are though, the most flattering and comfortable style I have ever worn. Being vertically challeged shorts are a particlarly difficult thing to get proportionally right. My latest shorts make four pairs using this pattern and I don't see me retiring it any time soon.
I knew there would be quite a bit of jiggling required to get the shorts out of the fabric I had. I managed just, with nothing left over.
I rescued a shirt of my husbands to use as the pocket bags etc and quite like how the purpley blue matches the indigo denim.
I have been wanting to add a pair of denim shorts to my wardrobe for some time now but not the sort my daughter would wear so these definitely tick a box for me. What is it about remnants and the resulting garments. They always wind up being my favourites!
Although it is not really shorts and sandals weather just yet where I live, I do have a new pair lined up to wear with my new shorts
