I tend to be one of those people who is always cold. I frequently sleep in flannel pants and a hoodie. Somehow, the allure of the shorts and cami pajama set keeps getting me. At least I can pair them with my parrot robe!
Back in September, I tried to make a pair of shorts for Brandon. They didn’t fit quite right, so they found a home with my little brother. Now that it’s summer, I decided to give it another go.
This all started when Brandon complained that he needed new shorts at the beginning of summer. He had his cargo shorts from college, but wanted something a little nicer. I took forever to follow-up on this request, and in the meantime he bought 3 pairs from Old Navy. Nevertheless, I still wanted to try my hand at making a pair for him. I used Thread Theory’s Jutland Shorts pattern, after seeing Meg of Cookin’ & Craftin’ make a great pair for her husband.
One of my goals during Me Made May was to not buy any RTW clothes. I was successful in this endeavor, but that didn’t stop me from window shopping a few times. The photo below was taken outside of Banana Republic.
