First up on tonight's agenda is my current sewing project. I am working on a Kate Spade inspired skirt right now. All it needs is a hook and eye and the hem, which I intend to do by hand*, and then it will be ready for it's photo debut, weather permitting. Since I didn't have time to make an Easter dress I think I am going to deem this my Easter skirt.
* In the not so distant past I had publicly declared my hatred of hand sewing. However, I think I have had a change of heart. A girl can change her mind, right? I still don't love it, but I think I am starting to see that it does have a purpose and can produce very satisfactory results. In the case of hand sewing, the end definitely justifies the means, even if the "means" are not a boatload of fun. I decided to hand baste the zipper on my skirt and I became magically converted, and in awe, of the wonders that a little hand sewing can do.
Now, lets get to the main point on tonight''s agenda. Summer shorts! I have been perusing the interwebs for some lovely inspiration, so kick back, grab a snack, and take a look.
I really love the retro flair that these shorts possess, but with their price tag of $230 the only way I will possess them is to make myself a pair.
these Modcloth shorts.
these shorts, also from Modcloth, are precious! It couldn't be that hard to draw a heart to make a simple patch pocket, right? ( These are precious, but not precious enough to order a pair with their nearly $200 price tag.)
Modcloth definitely has the cutest shorts that I have found online. I really like the pair above, but I am not sure if that pleat would do anything to help my thighs.
these on another inspiration post before, but I still love them.
Readers, what do you think? Do you love or hate my inspiration shorts? Have you seen any cute shorts while perusing clothing websites?
