I am most definitely a dress & pants person, but lately I’ve been living in shorts. I always looked at shorts as very casual, so in an effort to up my shorts game I pulled out the perfect med/light wool crepe that’s unfortunately sold out but here are a few great options.
The shorts were made using the Vogue 8836 pants pattern with the following alterations:
-Removed 32″ from the length of the pattern
-Removed the box pleats and added one inverted pleat on each side (allows the front of the pants to lay flat)
-Added a 2.5″ waist band
-Added a 2″ band at the end
The pattern used for this top was this super simple Vogue V8840 view A pattern with the following alterations:
-Removed 1.5″ from the length of the pattern
-Removed the breast darts
-Added 2.5″ to the bottom of the pattern to create a more squared pattern
-Added a 17.5″x 21″ sleeve to the bottom of the upper sleeve and connected the two sleeves by adding a 1″ elastic
-Added a 9″ zipper at the back of the neck
-Removed the front seam
Chandler’s top and shorts were made from a self drafted pattern using this eyelet fabric that’s perfect for kids wear.
