Finally...White Shorts!

Rarely do I remake something immediately again, but ever since making and wearing this outfit, it has become an absolute favorite of mine.  It's comfortable, casual, and my-kind-of-style.  I still had my pattern pieces on my sewing table!


My top, McCalls 7391, is made this time with a collar.  I must say, I prefer this finish over the facing option I used last time.  However, this collar is not for the beginner.  I am no rookie when it comes to collars, but this one takes some extra effort.  After stay stitching the neckline, some clipping is necessary when attaching the collar stand.  It just seemed to take longer than I am accustomed to when assembling collars.

I took better care this time with my eyelet placement, ensuring they were even on each side.  For the tie, I cut a 1 inch strip of fabric and fed it through my bias tape tool.  This was much easier than make a "tube" as I did last time.


Ahhhh, these Ottobre Safari shorts are the BEST.  I could sew up one in every color!  They are perfect in every way.

  2. I love white pants and shorts - so easy to team with a variety of tops. Mind you, I'm not good at keeping them white. Looking good, Shirley.

    1. Thanks Pam! I've always stayed away from white pants/shorts because I know once I wear them that I will definitely be dropping something on them. LOL I decided to throw caution to the wind!
