Designer Shorts Re-creation.

Project Description

What was your source for this sewing project? Other What are you most proud of? The exact copy!! And I made them longer. What advice would you give someone starting this project? If something fits you well, draft a pattern and then you can sew a copy - it will become your standard pattern.

What you will need

  • Some fabric from my stash that I purchased from Vogue America online store
  • which is cotton spandex
  • a metal zip
  • metal zip button and studs and thread - all from my stash. I purchased the fabric last year with the intention of making shorts.

Q&A with Pohutukawa

Pat Mitchell asked:
All the little details on your pants, belt loops, pockets and top stitching are things that make these a stand out garment. Well done! (as usual)
Pohutukawa answered:
Thanks Pat, I really like the pattern I made - this is my go to shorts pattern now.

TinaMc asked:
Could I ask a question? Is the blue detailing ribbon or twill tape or ???? Really love this detail and would like to incorporate it into something in the future. And how has that detailing held up?

Hello, it is a twill tape, I found in my stash, and it makes a great trim on these shorts, have fun!
