Let’s Make our own Shorts!
Confession, I haven’t made shorts for myself yet. My process for clothing is make stuff for the kids, and if you get good enough at doing it then make some for yourself. (vanity…right?!)
But these School’s Out Shorts from Peek-a-Boo Patterns couldn’t have been easier or cuter. They worked for both my daughters and son. I used double fold stretch elastic for the trim so they’re nice and stretchy.
I’ve also been making loads of T-Shirts. Check it out here.
So now you’re all set to use up your fabric and sharpen your sewing skills too!
Both the Shorts and the T-Shirt took about an hour each to make and I know I’ll cringe at the thought of buy kids shorts again.
Now…I’m going to be brave and make some for myself.
Tag me @jennifer_tryon on Instagram with what you’re making! I’d love to see it!
