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.
So cool! I’m so glad you found my tutorial helpful.
Your shorts look awesome by the way. I love that print!
Love your blog too, I look forward to visiting more often.
Have a good one.
Hi Maycie! Thank you the comment. I’m glad you found my lil blog. Your tutorial was most helpful.
Why were you asked to change? I’m sorry but I don’t see anything inappropriate about those shorts. In fact I think they’re really sweet. If someone ever told me to change my clothes because they did not like what I was wearing I would tell them where to go! I think you need to learn to stand up for your self especially something as personal as a science of style. Plus it’s just so rude to ask someone to change their clothes it shows just how narrow minded people are. You should really read this article http://rookiemag.com/2012/01/how-to-not-care-what-other-people-think-of-you/
Hi T! Thank you the comment. I could tell you were passionate as you typed it. The tea party was with a group of little girl at a boarding home. The rules are no shorts allowed. Because I was speaking to them, it was against the rules to wear this when they are already taught not to. I hope this makes sense. Thank you also for the article. It’s a good reminder of how people pleasing get’s one nowhere.
Asked to change? Why? They’re beautiful!
Cool shorts! Love the fabric.
Thank you Jodi. Old polyester fabric from my lovely Grandma.
