KCW: Serendipity shorts

These shorts are the result of a very slight re-working of the Sewlosophy Pattern Co. Serendipity Capris pattern (I have written about this pattern here and here).


In fact, I used the same pattern pieces I cut out for my weekend sewing. I pleated the front of the pants (tutorial here) and left the cuffs off. I finished the pants off following the trouser instructions.


The shorts are sewn from a stretch drill. I didn’t realise it was stretchy until I had washed it so pressed on with fingers crossed. The front of the waistband is sewn from non-stretchy chino drill for a bit more stability. And some pink. I sewed a size 2T for my tiny girl, with size 3 length.


I think they’re sweet. Elena approves. She will grow out of this pink stage, right?

Hugo’s turn tomorrow.

    NO, the pink phase will not last forever… but then again… Bwaaaaaaaaahahaha! The pants look lovely as shorts!
