Haha! These crazy shorts. I know. I thought the same thing while wearing them. And yes I know the patterns don’t quite line up in the front, but I’m getting there.
The two sisters Poly and Ester helped me with this one. I cut them to size, sewed them, and threw them on for a little psychedelic shorts action. Which warranted a relative to say, ‘where are you going in that?’. Plus, I mistakable wore these to a tea party with little girls, seriously, and was asked by the responsible adult, to change.
Haha. I need to plan my days better.

To make a pair, follow Maycie’s tutorial on making shorts from shorts.
I used a pair of high-waisted shorts as my template just because this fabric deserved it. I also added a .5 inch stitch down the sides to add a bit more depth.
By the way, will you be in NY in February? If so join me for my first ever Freshly Given Trunk Show on Feb. 16th.
