Shorts on the Line

Over at Imagine Gnats, there’s this fun contest going on called “Shorts on the Line“. Now, I am totally not expecting to win, but thought it would be really fun to participate. And let’s be honest, ever since I discovered the Iris Shorts pattern by Colette (I blogged about them here, too) I’ve been obsessed. Now, I will say that these are the only shorts I’ve ever sewn and probably should get out of my little sewing bubble next time I feel the urge to sew a pair of shorts…
Here’s why I love sewing shorts: they are fairly simple and take less time than most projects (I finished these in less than 3 hours.. hand stitching the waistband and everything!), they don’t take much fabric (even if you have a ba-donk like me), and printed shorts are so in right now. So, if I haven’t convinced you yet.. I just don’t know what else to say…
We will call these my 3rd of July shorts since I sewed them on the 3rd of July AND since I wore them to our 3rd of July backyard celebration last night with a few of our friends.
