Simplicity 2909 for Shorts
I finally finished this outfit for my daughter! I started this 3 weeks ago and finished yesterday. I had a remnant of some stretch denim that I thought I could get a pair of shorts out of for her. She NEVER wears denim, so I went out on a limb and tried a pair of shorts. The pattern is super simple--no pockets to work with and just an elastic waist. I even simplified the hem omitting the pattern piece for the bottom tab. It would have been a cute addition, however, not knowing if she would like these or not, I wanted to make them as quick as possible in case they never made it out of her dresser drawer. I'm happy to say that she likes them. It is hard to make the transition from jersey to denim.
The shirt fabric is a medium weight cotton that has a slight stretch to it. Only using the lace for the back yoke, it goes a long way! I still have plenty of scrap lace from a sewing project a couple of years ago. I do need to buy more lace in a variety of colors. Cream would have been ideal, but to tie in the white lace, I used white buttons.
I used a twin needle and top stitched the shorts to give them a little more detail.
