2nd sewing contest!

Jumping jellybeans! IPM2015 seems to be in full swing and already we’re on week two! This week’s challenge and contest is separates.  I’ve been approaching IPM2015 as a great way to ensure I have a summer wardrobe ready, should London decide to participate in summer this year. And for this week’s contest I’ve gone for Grainline Studio’s Maritime shorts coupled with Colette’s(free) Sorbetto top. Both of which I love!

The fabric for shorts is wacky I know but I love them and had such a feeling of accomplishment when I finished them (my first ever fly zipper!). Fingers crossed the sun will grace us on a few weekends this summer so I’ll get to wear them! As with last week you can read my contest blog here. G. and I spent a sunny evening playing in the park and taking photos in the sunshine. Below, for your perusal, are a gazillion photos.

    1. Thanks – I was amazed at how well the shorts fitted. Especially because the fabric frayed soo much, I knew I wouldn’t be able to un-stitch the seams once they were done (so I didn’t dare try them on until the end, lest I loose my motivation upon realizing they didnt fit!).


  1. That fabric for the shorts is just brilliant! The Sorbetto is such a great pattern isn’t it?! I could really do with making another one. I do hope summer decides to stick around soon!
