Summer has definitely arrived and it’s hot over here. I thought it’s a great time to sew up my first Oliver + S pattern. After scrolling through I decided on the Sketchbook shorts pattern. The fabric is Rustic weave by moda, purchased from my local fabric shop Rudy and Kate.
It took me a little while to decide on making either a size 4 or 5, as sizing is 6M to 4 or 5 to 12 and Coop’s is a size 4. Ultimately I went with fit, the size 4 is perfection.
I love the simplicity of the shorts, with its elastic waist and mock fly, yet the final result is a slightly tailored finish.
