Starting this month, Fabric Godmother will specially select a pattern each month and combine it with an appropriately awesome fabric to create the complete sewing package, minus your machine and skills of course! Buy the kit and you’ll save on the price of buying them separately.
This month’s kit is the Granline Studio Maritime shorts. A perfect pair of summer shorts. Made in our stretch cotton sateen, you’ll probably want a pair in every colour. Wear them with a simple jersey top (mine is the coco from Tilly & the Buttons) and you’re beach ready. Or add a pair of wedges, a strappy top and a pile of gold jewellery they would work just as well for a night out. These shorts are quick to make and include curved front pockets, back patch pockets and a fly front closure. Techniques you will use for this pattern include straight seams, curved seams, inserting a fly and basic hemming.
I made mine in this emerald green (more than a little inspired by Wimbledon!) You can choose from Emerald, Coral, White, Black, Navy or Royal.
(It is worth noting that as the fabric has some stretch in it you may want to make the shorts slightly smaller for a better fit)
The price for the pattern, fabric and all the notions required is £29. Get your kit here.
Happy sewing xxx
