DIY: Cuffed Shorts

    |
Lucky green

So far I've been doing well with keep up with my monthly goals of sewing at least 1 clothing item from a pattern. This month I decided to make a pair of cuffed shorts since the weather has been really nice lately. I received the pattern as a free gift when I attended the MimiGStyle Sewing Event last year. The fabric was on sale at Walmart and I bought it at $1 a yard.

I'm still working on finding out my correct pattern size and because of that I felt like the shorts were a bit too big for me. It worked out anyway because I believe that I am actually improving at this sewing from scratch mess. I decided to send the shorts to my mom so I didn't style the shorts but I did create a look with St. Patrick's Day in mind.





Are you ready to wear shorts yet? Did you wear anything green today?

  9. The shorts look great! I love the button detail on the side. Good job!
    I rarely wear shorts (except around the house), even though it's always hot where I live. I just don't love them on me. Never thought about trying to make some though, maybe I'll give it a go....

  12. Hmm they look like they fit really well. Not good to have them to small b/c they can ride up and these are not doing that, they fall really well.

  15. Yeah, they aren't that big but I didn't like the way it sat in the front. Looked like saggy butt backwards. :-)
