Skill Level: Beginner

Pattern: Iris

What kind of fabric did you use? I used some cotton Chambray that I had left over from making a simple skirt. I really like the colour and soft feel of the cotton.

How did you decide to reflect your personal style in the pattern? I love blue! And what you can’t see is that inside I taped some of the seams in red bias tape – my secret!

What thoughts do you have about the project? The shorts were so quick and easy to make – as the pattern was easy to follow – that I have already got some jade cotton poplin ready for the next pair and I think I’m going to try piping for the first time around the waist band.

Thanks, Vicky!

You’re in luck! Our Clover pattern can easily be made in capri length.

Oh what a fabulous pair of shorts you’ve made. And I’m excited to hear that they can be easily altered to a capri length. Now I will have to buy another pattern – oh yeah!

Hi Nothy Lane, actually it’s our pants pattern, Clover, that can be made at capri length, not our shorts pattern, Iris. :)
