I got to sew today for the first time in awhile and it felt soo good! I have missed it.
I have been working away at a huge pile of awesome Theory stretch denim I got from Mood. I got a swatch of it a few months ago and it took me forever to decide if I wanted to order some or not. The description said it had a very slight stretch, and the swatch was so tiny that I couldn’t tell for sure how much stretch it had.
But I decided to go ahead and order 5 yards of it and I’m glad I did because it rocks.
I made Owen a pair of Sunny Day Shorts out of it.
I like this pattern cuz it’s free and easy to customize. I added front pockets.
And some square back pockets.
I had to add several inches of length to this pattern though because it’s really short for boys.
I also made Seth a pair of Sunny Day Shorts.
More front pockets.
And I made one double welt pocket on the back.
I also made a pair of capris for me out of this denim. I took some pictures of them right after I finished them (not on me) and I’m going to put them up here just in case I never get around to having Jon take some of me wearing them. At least I’ll have some documentation.
Now I’m finishing a pair of shorts for Ezra and then my 5 yards will be almost gone.
