Summer shorts – Part 1

What’s summer without some pretty shorts.  After searching for a while I came across the chambray shorts with lace trim, a free pattern on Melly Sews.

I wanted to make a pair of prefontaine style shorts with pockets in a green linen I had bought, and since the weight of my fabric was heavier than chambray I had to adjust the pattern a little. Inadjusted the pattern by adding darts in the back, to accommodate my curves 😉 Also instead of lace, I used this cute bias tape with pineapple print. The waist is elastic that I sewed using a Craftsy tutorial. 

I think they turned out pretty nice, for a first try 🙂
