Iris Shorts for Me!

Hey!  It’s Shorts on the Line time!  Have you been following along this series hosted by imagine gnats and small + friendly?  If not, you can catch up here.  So many awesome shorts have been shared during Week 1!

I was excited to join in the series, but Yuki doesn’t wear shorts, so I figured I’d make some shorts for the baby.  But then Britex so generously offered to provide me with some fabric and I couldn’t turn that down.  And when Britex offers you fabric you don’t use it on your 10 month old baby who will literally just poo poo on it.  So I decided to sew for myself and use the one shorts pattern I own for women but had never sewn, which is Colette’s Iris Shorts.  I bought this pattern in August of 2012, people.  2 years ago!!  So I’m really glad I got this push to finally try it.

Shorts on the Line!

It’s week three of the Shorts on the Line series!  Aren’t shorts the perfect summer staple for everyone’s wardrobe?  They’ve had some fantastic inspiration, tutorials and pattern reviews for boys, girls and women’s shorts over the last 2 weeks.  Check out the week 1 and week 2 recaps.

Today I’m doing a pattern review for Figgy’s Banyan shorts over on Designs by Sessa!

I like how these classic shorts turned out and will definitely make more (and the pants version too)!  It’s awesome the pattern fits up to size 8/9, so this pattern will last me a loooong time.  And you know I love me a unisex pattern!  Go check out all the deets here.
