Whilst I have been quiet lately, I have actually been rather busy and it is time to catch up.
I have recently found a rather cool way to use up scrap fabrics and also to make a first step on the trousers making ladder: Shorts.
To cut it short: I have used the free pattern Sachensuchershorts (” things seeker shorts”) by Fabelwald. There are two types of pockets on offer, I have, so far only tried my favourite one.
Eden collection by Hamburger Liebe and some stripes
Fabric: Could be by Lillestoff, but I might be wrong. But definitely a left over of my cozy and slightly pyjama-y long sleeve shirt. And some stripes.
Fabric: Lillestoff. I own it since ages, almost two years I would say. Initially bought for a onesie but ended up as at least two baby jumpers. Ordered in England, without knowing it was Lillestoff. Or caring about Lillestoff. And stripes, well spotted.
Fabric: Baustelle by Lillestoff. This has been sold out quickly. I ordered on my phone, quickly, to make sure I would get some of this precious fabric. And yet more stripes in case you didn’t notice.
I had been a little bit unsure and thought they might be too short and too flimsy to be used properly but actually they are not. They have all gone through extensive testing and they get worn a lot.
