Summers are always busy, but this year it seems like we are even more busy with the beautiful weather we had. I’ve been sewing every now and then, but I must say rainy weather will make you do more crafts than beautiful Sunshine.
I initially made the shorts for Elliott for a short camping trip to Eastern Washington. It was a last minute idea and I used a pants pattern which I already had and made before. The pattern itself is for a long pair of pants and I just used half of the length of the long pair.
My first attempt I also made them smaller in the leg because they seemed too huge to me. Well I should have left them as they were, because they ended up too small. Elliott’s friend Oliver who is turning one soon, fit in them perfectly.
My second attempt I kept the sizes of the pattern and I added a contrasting trim to the waistband and hems. I used my serger for all the seams besides the waistband.
Also our house got painted and this way I can showcase our new red door, which I absolutely love.
