What I hope my end result will be making my own pair of high-waist shorts, minus the cool zipper detailing.
First attempt at drafting the shorts! Using Simplicity pants pattern #5259 as my guide. Also, the test fabric swatch of my pattern design from Spoonflower.
1 yard of my very own fabric.
I’m probably the only one that wants to hold onto summer just a little while longer. 100+ degree days be damned, I sure hate layering up.
There. I said it.
So I’m rebelling with these shorts. Hopefully the rebellion is a successful one because I’ve wanted high-waist shorts for the longest time, and what a treat it would be to have them in a fabric of my own design, right? After making a scale change to my design based on the swatch I got back from Spoonflower last month, I received my fabric order in the mail a week ago. I settled on making shorts because it would’ve definitely been pricey to get more than a single yard to make anything bigger than that. However, if somehow this shorts pattern doesn’t work out, I may totally turn this yard of fabric into a crop top.
Let’s just hope the days are still warm enough by the time I complete these shorts. If not, layering it up with tights it is I guess.
