Hi you crafty bunch, it’s ME yet again! Altho I say that, it’s been nearly a month since my last clothing make, yikes
Might be a while until my next clothing make too in fact, our house is finally on the market after the whole covid fun, so we’re [carefully] looking for a new house now (whilst socially distancing and wearing masks obv!), so it’s all go here!!
Aaaaanyways, so my latest creation is some more shorts, cos I love shorts!!! This time it’s some stretch shorts tho, usually I make loose fit cotton ones.
I modified the pocket slightly as I know some people testing the pattern found that it gaped a bit, so I used a semi-circle design (which I tend to use for all other trousers and shorts I make as I love that kind of pocket)
The pattern is technically called Heatwave Hotpants (which is appropriate because temps were 32 deg C today, which is super hot for we here in the UK), but I figured I’d lengthen them slightly (about an inch) to combat the chub rub. Thing is it turns out that despite being a reasonable 5’7" apparently I have really short legs so actually I feel like they’re too long now so I’m pondering shortening them now by at least a couple of inches…
I’m thinking that when shortened to actual hotpants they’d look great with these rainbow fishnet tights I just ordered from Snag, buuuut question is, is it inappropriate for a 44 year old to wear hotpants and fishnets?!!
Soooo hot, how easy do you think it would be to train Rosie the woof to fan me with a giant leaf fan??
See ya next time!
