Today I managed to clear the decks for a few hours of sewing this afternoon.
This dress has been one of my favourites for years, but the top contrast fabric and straps has been showing signs of wear and I knew it wouldn’t make another summer. The skirt however was still in great condition, so I decided to refashion it into something useful.
I’ve had the Purl Soho City Gym Shorts printed out since they were released, so I quickly taped them together and got to work.
My niece and I share similar favourite colours so I knew a pink floral would be a welcome addition to her wardrobe. For contrast binding I used a cute floral bias I got from Daiso.
It all went together fairly easily, had a slight issue with the waistband fitting to the shorts. I think I measured it incorrectly? I don’t do very well with inches and converted on the fly instead of doing it properly.
For a quick make it has turned out well and I can’t wait to hear my very fashion conscious niece’s verdict (and I hope they fit?).
