Name: Vicky

Skill Level: Beginner

Pattern: Iris

What kind of fabric did you use? I used some cotton Chambray that I had left over from making a simple skirt. I really like the colour and soft feel of the cotton.

How did you decide to reflect your personal style in the pattern? I love blue! And what you can’t see is that inside I taped some of the seams in red bias tape – my secret!

What thoughts do you have about the project? The shorts were so quick and easy to make – as the pattern was easy to follow – that I have already got some jade cotton poplin ready for the next pair and I think I’m going to try piping for the first time around the waist band.

Thanks, Vicky!

( I had knee surgery and my knees are not very pretty,but they work.)

You’re in luck! Our Clover pattern can easily be made in capri length.

Oh what a fabulous pair of shorts you’ve made. And I’m excited to hear that they can be easily altered to a capri length. Now I will have to buy another pattern – oh yeah!

Hi Nothy Lane, actually it’s our pants pattern, Clover, that can be made at capri length, not our shorts pattern, Iris. :)
