Summer is finally here in Australia! If you know me, you’d know that my summer staples are shorts. That’s why I decided to sew a summer-y pair of shorts to add to my wardrobe.
No matter how may times I sew, I still seem to make silly mistakes. One of the biggest rules in sewing is to sew the fabric with right sides together (of course there are sometimes exceptions to this rule). When I sewed in the waist band, I sewed it wrong sides together! I ended up needing to unpick it and re-sew it. Honestly, my seam ripper is my best friend when I sew.
Styling the Shorts with a Head Wrap
For this outfit, I also sewed a head wrap with my over-used McCall’s 4116 pattern. I chose an olive green fabric because it matched nicely with the green leaves on the short’s print.
What I learnt while sewing this project is that making mistakes are okay. Although I chose an “easy” levelled pattern, I still made silly mistakes. But when you do make a mistake, just step back and see what you can do to resolve the issue. Although I made mistakes, I still ended up with a pair of shorts that I’m really happy with and where you can’t notice the mistake I made.
