… yup, I’ve no idea where Mr Loops’ mind was with that one…
Anyways, hey you crafty bunch, I hath returned after my rather extended interlude (due to my ill-health and our continued heartbreak at losing our pupper Rosie). I’m pleased to say that I’m back to sewing again, and my latest make is this lovely (if I do say so myself) pair of butterfly chambray shorts!
Admittedly it may have been a poor choice wearing such a bright attention seeking top with them (and/or not tucking it in), but I wanted to match the colour I used on the feature pockets
I did ponder also putting a matching band on the bottom, but in the end decided I didn’t want to take away from the pretty butterfly chambray so instead I hemmed them with a decorative stitch in a matching colour. I’ve not actually done this before, but I love how subtle it is.
I keep thinking that I want to make something different with chambray, because I really love it as a summer fabric, buuuuut I wear shorts 95% of summer and I only tend to wear stretch fabrics on my top half cos of the ole bazookas etc, so it makes sense to just make tons of chambray shorts!
As I sit here, I see 2 other chambray fabrics waiting to be made into shorts… a nice one with black flowers on, and one you’d probably call a bit more me… one with dinosaurs all over, rofl. I probably have more chambray in my fabric drawers too…
And before I leave you for today, I’m pleased to tell you that in just over an hour we’ll be heading off (and I’ll be wearing my butterfly shorts of course) to the Bath Cats and Dogs Home, to pick up our new rescue pupper, Angel Rosie’s little ‘sister’, Arwen. Formally to be known as Lady Arwen of Lydney, lol.
(It should be noted that I’ve never seen Lord of the Rings, but Mr Loops has reliably informed me that there was a half-elf in it called Arwen so that’s presumably who she was named after!)
Pixellated (just to be a meanie) until we’ve picked her up and I reveal her in “Let’s see your pets” in the lounge, and on future clothing posts!!
Well done for making it to the end!!
