Since I’m doing more and more clothing sewing, I’ve decided to join the 2013 Style the Stash Sew A Long. It’s a great community of stitchers dedicated to using up their stashes. Check out the blog to see what everyone has been sewing. My contribution for June was the navy batik dress with the bone buttons. This month I’ve started off with a couple of pairs of shorts for some more summertime fun in the sun. These are simple stitching with few to no details. No waistband, no pockets, no yoke, no topstitching; zippers are the only tricky element. I used invisible zippers which I find to be much easier to install than standard zippers.
Both shorts are made of stretch twill. Total: 1 1/4 yards used from stash.
