Let me begin by saying that I do not usually wear shorts. You might think my hesitance is in part due to my inability to achieve the adequate amount of summer tanned-skin. In truth this is my least concern when in comes to bearing my naked gams in short pants. They leave more of my legs bare than I am comfortable exposing, allowing my skin to stick to bus seats and diner booths. They also expose my lower half to the elements; Not always a good idea as I get cold easily-- which explains why I enjoy stepping into a sun warmed car after prolonged periods of time in air conditioning.
Despite my reservations on shorts, I do own two pairs of of pleat-front, cuffed shorts. They fit my body type (pear/dewdrop) and style (more Audrey Hepburn than Brigitte Bardot) better than any old denim cutoffs.
Lately I've been planning a summer shorts wardrobe update. There are so many cute styles to try. Here are my most recent favorites-- please follow the links for fabulous sources of inspiration!
|1. Scalloped shorts, 2. Popomomo shorts, 3. Summer white - lace shorts, 4. Marc by Marc Jacobs ombre shorts|
I hope you're keeping cool! Here it's almost too hot to sew, but I still have some projects in the works, and one recent FO from the Drape Drape books that I can't wait to share...
Happy sewing :)
