pattern remix: shorts


The other day I got the itch to make LM a pair of shorts for the summer. I had an idea of what I wanted them to look like but I needed a base pattern to work from, so I searched through my stash of vintage patterns until I found one in her size that I could remix.  


After a little chopping and tweaking, as well as the addition of some ties in front and a pocket in back, this is what I ended up with:


Overall I am really happy with the result! I am loving the extra details and the contrasting fabric. I know these shorts will get a lot of use this summer and I just may end up making another pair. Have you ever remixed a pattern? I thought it was fun to add a little personal touch.

I'm linking up with KCWC!

  17. I linked to this post in my blog today. Your cute shorts inspired me to use some very uninspiring brown cord I had in my stash. Next time I am at the fabric shop I am keeping an eye out for a prettier colour.
