Summer Shorts

Hello Readers. Sometimes my sewing isn't very exciting. It is just basic clothes for the season I'm in. And sometimes my sewing isn't even for me.

*** SHORTS 1***
These shorts were great but the waist and legs seemed just a bit too big. Trying to get the right fit in the waist, hips and legs all at the same time requires alterations. At least for me.

These shorts needed a little taken off each side.

The only concern with new side seams is the metal rivets at the hip pocket. You can see here I avoided the rivet the first time I tried sewing this new seam. I had to go back and make sure I didn't stitch right over the metal. The location of the rivets dictated my side seams.

This is not a thrilling refashion but I needed shorts desperately.

My daughter gets all the credit for this one. She wanted to make her black romper more exciting. She started embroidering flowers and made this romper into a one of a kind piece of clothing.

Look at those flowers. So pretty!

These little gym shorts are for my youngest. He needed some more shorts too. I remember my mom making shorts from our pants as a kid. The tradition continues.

Thanks for reading along, now go make something fun for yourself.
