Project Description

What are you most proud of? The fit, topstitching detail and the back pockets. Feel like they don't look "homemade" at all but something I WOULD buy! I know that there are some minor tweaks for the next one, but the fit is absolutely perfect!! Update: Most proud?... altering a pattern that now is my TNT (tried and True) and I used it to whip up two more pairs very quickly! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Watch the videos all the way through first, then tackle the pattern alterations. I realize that there were things I just missed the first time around. Also, IT"S SO WORTH making muslins (Or two or three as in my case) To have a pattern that fits perfectly!

Fabulous sewing job! The shorts look great on you. How many pair will you make for your summer wardrobe?
