I had originally wanted to make a simple boxy top to go with the shorts and do a full outfit post, however the top went terribly wrong (mostly just being way too big and the shoulders are inches off) so I am bummed and going to keep this short to just the shorts.
I have always a pair of floral shorts as they are practical but still cute and feminine but because I rarely shop at malls and don’t dare to order pants online, it never happened. When I found this awesome print on Fabric.com, I knew I had to try and make my own.
I love the print! Wish I had a million more yards of it 🙂 The only downside here was the accidental awkward pattern matching and pattern placement. You can’t unsee it can you? I might just wear longer tops from now on and let just a little of the shirts peek out…
Multiple side views because it’s less awkward from the side.
Invisible zipper looking fairly invisible.
The inside has underlining rather than lining because I noticed a lot of RTW shorts I own are not lined so I didn’t bother. I did underline because the floral fabric is see through and I wanted to hide the darts.
Crotch is a little wonky but overall still love the print too much to care. I have just enough left over to give it another try someday with fitting corrections and maybe some pockets 🙂
