Description

So - I've been wanting to try my hand at clothes for a while now - but I had no idea where to start.  And this project may be way more complicated than I should take on as a first project, but +Sariecherries just made a pair and they came out awesome.  Surely, I can make one too. Even if I have to tweet her questions every 10 minutes while I do it.

The pattern for these little shorts call for a lightweight fabric such as chiffon or silk - so I picked up a yard of a Simply Silky Print. The fabric I bought is very similar to this but is pink and grey, and maybe more zebra-y.  I couldn't find the fabric I purchased on their website.  I also picked up twice the elastic the pattern called for.  I'll either be using elastic instead of ribbon in the legs like +Sariecherries did, or I'll have enough to make 2 pair of these shorts.  I haven't decided yet, but I didn't find any ribbon in the color I wanted and the right size at JoAnn's.  I'll take a look at the local Wal-Mart before I start.  Maybe I'll get lucky.

**Update**
I'm thrilled with how easy this pattern was to read and put together.  Now I have some great PJ shorts for myself.  One thing I would love - a longer inseam without going up a size.  Maybe my book on sewing I bought today will explain that.

Sariecherries sort of awkward taking what basically constitutes photos of my crotch... I tried to have Matt take photos of the shorts, but he totally took them at the wrong angle. But I should be surprised. The first thing he said when he saw them is "they're wider than they are tall."

Great! I love the fabric! I am going to have to make a pair too!

Saruqa Carolmarie thanks ladies! I ended up doing elastic in the legs instead of ribbon, since I could find any ribbon I loved. But I think they were super comfortable to sleep in, either way.

Sariecherries did you see the ones Allegorical made, with the Tula Pink fabric? Epic! https://www.threadbias.com/projects/cameo-bloomers I think I should start a group for these, and we can all include our projects in it.
