kcwc spring 2012: day seven
April 29th, 2012
I'm a little late with the last post of the week, sorry. Yesterday was so dark and rainy we couldn't take any pictures (hence the wellies).
the fabric: this awesome star fabric is from JoAnn's country club collection. I only remember the name because it's hilarious. The fabric is a really nice bottomweight print, which I have the hardest time finding.
the sewing: I made this pattern last summer, but never got around to finishing them. Ever do that? Well the half finished shorts don't fit this year, but I liked the pattern so much I traced a bigger size. The pattern is nicely tailored and the tiny pocket is adorable, even if it's totally useless. I have to say, these skinny star shorts are pretty much the bomb: simple, long, good for school and play. I think this would work well for boys too, maybe in a size up from what they normally wear so it's not so, so tight.
Each day in the flickr pool has been better than the last. On this, the final day of kcwc, your handmade clothes are pretty much blowing my mind. Check out these amazing garments:
