I’ve had Simplicity 3688 in my stash for ages but it wasn’t until I saw My Happy Sewing Place’s version of the pants that I decided to actually make them. I figured the simple high-waisted style would translate to an easy shorts pattern.
I traced the pant legs in order to make my own shorts pattern and just cut them short. I wasn’t quite sure in the end how long I wold want the shorts so my pattern was extra long just to stay on the safe side. I cut my pieces and sewed my pleats and waistband so all that was left was the actual scallops. I ended up using a can to make a pattern though I wish I had used a larger circle so my scallops wouldn’t be so teeny.
Im officially bored of taking photos in my backyard. I need to find a boy or a nice friend to take awesome pictures of my projects!
