Sailor shorts for July
The making : firstly, let's talk about the size. I cut a size M according to my measurements, Then, I read Jane's post about the same pattern (look at the buttons she found !) and she said that size M was too big for her. So I decided to start again, cutting size S. And as you can see, this is the right one. So beware if you make them.
Secondly, buttonholes. I've always avoided buttonholes because I'm a coward ! They were so easy to make actually ! Now, I can make this shirt dress I've been wanting for ages !
As for the buttons, I know there is this legend about not putting green and blue together. I don't get it. If someone has an explanation, please share it !
The fabric comes from an old cotton/linen bedsheet dyed in blue. It behaves pretty well : no ironing needed.
I'm very happy with my new shorts !
