Previously part of the Womens BundleUP offered by Pattern Revolution, the women's Taylor Shorts are now available as a stand-alone purchase from Greenstyle Creations.
There are three length options, flat or pleated front, and a contoured waistband. There is a zippered fly, but no worries, a video tutorial is provided by Greenstyle Creations on their website here.
|This pair of shorts is made with duck fabric . . . isn't it a fun print! |
You can find the seahorse print at Hobby Lobby!
I love the comfort of the shorts, and the fact that I can "Taylor" the pattern to fit me using my sewing skills and tailoring knowledge. Now you can make your own pair of shorts for the summer, in a rainbow of colors and prints to suit your taste!
Since we are all shaped differently (I make a smaller size waistband and take in the back darts a bit more to make my perfect fit), Greenstyle has some helpful guidance for the waistband. If you're a little nervous about making a contoured waistband, watch the video tutorial here.
Here are a couple of pairs I made while testing the pattern.
I used a lightweight Twill above and a Cotton Duck below.
And here is a seersucker pair for my daughter. . . . you may recognize this pair of shorts . . ..
They are the shorts you see in the piping tutorial on Greenstyle Creations website here.
I often take pictures along the way while testing a pattern . . . it helps the designer see how we understand the directions he/she are drafting; and, in this case, it helps you if you're looking for some guidance for to add piping to a garment!
|LOVE my piping foot!|
Get started on your personalized pair of summer shorts!
I went to Hobby Lobby and grabbed some of that seahorse duck fabric for ME!
I went shopping wearing my Lille Racerback (Maxi) -- a review of that pattern is here and the pattern can be purchased here.
