Last week I did a little more pattern testing for Sew Caroline. Her new Magnolia Shorts pattern is now live and on sale through the end of month. I made this pair in a very flowy rayon spandex knit I found at Joann’s. This pattern is designed for flowy fabrics, such as voile, rayon, or guaze. Something with a great drape. That’s what makes these shorts look more like a skirt!
I wore these to IKEA one day and a friend thought it was a skirt. She was surprised to learn I was actually wearing shorts. And since I was wearing shorts I was super comfy!
These are a wonderful addition to my mom wardrobe! I feel put together wearing them, but comfortably so! I can keep up with the kiddos without worrying about flashing an audience.
I’m hoping I can find some time to whip up another pair soon! Probably something in a solid color fabric to pair with fun tops. So if you’re looking for a fun addition to your wardrobe pick up this pattern while it’s on sale!
Behind the scenes. Pumpkin wanted in on the photoshoot, too.
