Shout about it Shorts!

Although its the depths of winter blues here in Melbourne, I picked up a great remnant fabric from Lincraft. A little over a metre of bold red and black floral cotton- just enough to make a pair of Summer shorts.


I really wanted something with a classic look to match the vintage inspired fabric. Also a pattern that’s flattering over the hips and waist is important when using such a bold pattern.Collage for shorts


I found a great, simple pattern from the lovely Measure Twice, Cut Once. The Darcy Short is free to download as a PDF to print and stick together. Too easy. You can find the pattern on MTCO’s Darcy Short page.

Voila, the lovely fabric that inspired this spontaneous creative expedition. As you can see not much fabric at all, enough for either shorts or maybe a bag.
