Vintage Simplicity 9852 Strikes Again! (shorts version 2)

Remember these shorts?

Well, today I made another pair, out of…get this… a curtain that I got for $1 at the thrift store. Yup – a curtain.

013No pockets this time. Actually, I did make pockets, but I screwed them up. So rather than unpick everything and re-position them, I simply cut them off and sewed the seam closed. Problem solved!

012I swear to you, they are hemmed evenly! (I must be standing funny…)

014Meanwhile, everything in my garden is blooming!

    I love that a needle and thread and time in your garden or anywhere outside brings that beautiful smile to your face.

  2. You look great in shorts. What a bargain and a new lease of life for someone else’s unwanted stuff. Your garden looks beautiful and that pink peony, love it.
