I have finally finished my Sweet Scalloped Shorts that I’ve been making for selfish sewing week. I really enjoyed this project. It was a bit of a stretch for my sewing skills, but I felt like I wanted to learn new skills so it was a good challenge.
As I mentioned in a previous post I had a wee bit of a battle with the welt pockets – mainly with attaching the pocket bags; but now I feel confident doing them in a future project. I also did darts (I’ve only done them once before) and my first ever invisible zip.
Now I’m looking forward to making a couple more pairs in different colours to wear this Summer.
During Selfish Sewing Week I also made a knit maxi skirt (which I haven’t yet had a chance to photograph properly) and have partially made another Wiksten tank, although I’m not so sure if the colours suit me – I might have to give it to someone else.
