I have lots of motivation to sew right now, but:
1. I can’t decide what to make because there are approximately 187 things on my To Make list.
2. I can’t seem to make it out to the store to buy materials. Or I go to the store and forget some necessary part because I’m frazzled from having two kids in a fabric store.
So indecisive, frazzled mom problems.
However, I did manage to make Tucker a super easy pair of slouchy shorts from fabric I already had. I didn’t use a pattern, I just traced around a pair of shorts that fit him, added a seam allowance and some length, then cut an upside down U for the middle of the legs part. I decided to skip elastic in favor of a fabric waist band just because I wanted to use a different color.
Then I added a little faux drawstring. For the leg hems, I just rolled them twice and sewed little bar tacks in four places to keep them rolled.
I like them! They were easy and took very little fabric. I might make them a little shorter next time and make the waist a little tighter. I also might add a little kangaroo pocket to the front. 🙂
