Pattern: PatternRunway Sweet Scallop Shorts
Fabric: Sew Classic Bottomweight Stretch Poplin in Red from Joann
Cost: approx. $13.50 = $9.50 (pattern) + ~$4.00 (fabric & interfacing)
<3: again... love the DeSiGN! I also love the lining fabric, which was from my scrap box, I used for the pockets.
- The instructions for the welt pockets are super confusing. I had a very difficult time following them and just kept re-reading and re-doing it and it eventually worked. Other than that, the rest of the shorts went together very easily.
- The waistband is a little too big. I realized that I need to take it in at least an inch. I'm wondering if this is due to my fabric having some stretch... but it is interfaced?
- I also realized that in general I don't like side zip shorts (or pants, but more on this in a different post), but these will still get a lot of wear.
Overall: Easy, cute pattern that I might have to make again in the future to wear for the fall/winter especially after seeing paunnet's version. I would recommend it to others... just need to find a different welt pocket tutorial. Maybe this one?
