Summer Shorts – Part 2

In my search for the perfect summer shorts pattern, I also came across the Nantucket pattern by Colette Patterns, a beautiful pattern with clear instructions. I made a couple of these. Once again, given the fabrics I chose to use, I had to adjust the pattern for fit by adding darts…I think this is going to be a standard adjustment for me to fit patterns 😉

The pattern calls for eyelets and since I didn’t have any I decided to test the buttonhole sewing function on my machine. Apart from an alignment problem, it turned out ok.  

The second pair I made, I decided on a more beachy look, given the fabric I used, and added a waistband and put in eyelets. I just realized I don’t have a pic of these shorts worn…
