Ohmigoodness, it is 1pm! Already! Ugh, my friends. UGH. The morning completely got away from me because I worked out, which was great, but then everything got pushed back. AND I have been frantically trying to finish this project, so that I could share it with you today. I don’t know why I thought it would only take me an hour. It took more like two . . . two and a half? I don’t even know. It took twice as long as I planned, and after looking at the pictures, I don’t think it’s completely finished yet, but here it is anyway . . . Shorts.
I am not actually sunburned, by the way – I don’t know why it looks like I am anything other than transparent. But whatever, anyway, the shorts. Okay there are a couple of problems here – a) the fabric is puckering a bit beneath the pockets, and b) the zipper is pulling in the back. Both are completely easy things to fix, so I’m not stressing. Oh and I also have to press the hems. But aside from these minor issues, I freaking LOVE THESE SHORTS. They feature all of my favorite things – high waist, stand-away pockets (which will be more pronounced after I fix the puckering issue), nice wearable length, and they’re s-t-r-e-t-c-h-y. I used a really pretty double knit jersey, which is perfect for our long roadtrip vacation this summer – comfy to wear in the car, non-wrinkly and cute. As soon as I fix the weirdo issues, I’m totally making these in a dark grey knit as well.
Now that I stare at these pictures, I’m think I’m going to make the legs a tad shorter in front. Lengthen the ol’ pins a bit. Yeah. That’s the ticket. Shorts.
