Summer Sewing

Over the summer I have been using maxi skirts and dresses from charity shops and remaking them into trousers and shorts.

Finish product - cropped trousers.

Cropped trousers were not the intended result, but due to mis-caluations in using the initial trousers as a pattern. AS this was my first attempt at making trousers and using a sewing machine I feel that the result is satisfactory.

Next I decided to make shorts. This time I decided to draw my own pattern.
