Her post about the pattern: Sewing My Seasonal Mini Wardrobe
What kind of fabric did you use? For the Iris shorts, I used a navy blue wool crepe that has an amazing drape and a dressy feel. For the Sorbetto top I used cotton from the DS Quilts Aunt Edna series.
How did you decide to reflect your personal style in the pattern? Since I have gams over the age of 40, I added another inch to the lovely Iris shorts.
What thoughts do you have about the project? I really feel like the Iris shorts pattern was created just for me. They feature all of the details that I love in a pair of shorts. The pocket on the seam fits neatly on the hip creating a nice slimming line and giives my hands a place to hang during an awkward photo session with my husband.
