Give me strawberries and cream… or just a coffee, that’ll do

My, I think at some point I’ll make all my clothing by myself. I feel I’m getting better every time I make a new piece. This time, I felt like sewing me some shorts since I spotted this gorgeous piece of plum coloured silk-like viscose fabric at the store (It was on sale for only €3 for one meter!). It has such a soft feel to it and even while sitting it doesn’t seem to get too wrinkled which is nice.
The idea of the sewing these kind of shorts I got from a similar pair of denim shorts I recently saw at asos.com, so without having any idea of the pattern, I just started cutting pieces and stitched them to each other until it looked right to my eyes. Since the fabric is not stretchy at all, I also had to add a zipper and buttons to the front (Which is something I hate hate hate doing – with a passion!) But after about 4 hours, the shorts were complete and finished and yes, I wore them the last 3 days in a row, haha! I also bought the same fabric in a pale blue colour, so I’ll see what can be done with that when boredom strikes next time!

Did you know that Plastic Ono Band and Sean Lennon are playing a concert in London on June 14th??? Man, I SOOO wanna go, someone buy me a ticket? (I think it’s sold out already anyway… hm)

Have a sunny day!

    i loove the rawness of the shorts how despite the fact that they have been made by eye and with no structure such as those made with patterns they are still so chic and elegant! i applaud u on ur talent :D

    I thought your “dogpoo” hair was pretty cute, lol.
    You did a great job on the shorts! You’re really good at making things without patterns – wish I had that ability too! My sister always insists on making a pattern on paper first, cutting it out, outlining the fabric, etc. I get so bored and it makes me hate to sew!!
