5 Reasons to Sew a Pair of Shorts This Week

red spring shorts

There are a couple of reasons why you should consider sewing a pair of shorts this spring. Here’s my 5. Can’t wait to hear yours!

Instant gratification

A basic pair of shorts like the red ones I made this weekend take about 2 hours, from choosing the pattern to wearing them for brunch.

They’re fun

If you sew them in a bright color, like red, yellow, green and wear them with shirts or tees in contrasting colors. Or if you use a playful button, like my fat kid button above.

They’re comfy

If you iron them flawlessly and wear them with a nice shirt or blouse, they’ll look as feminine as any skirt. And you can go to work by bike even on windy days 🙂

They’re versatile

You can wear them with sneakers, flats, sandals and even heels – if you dare. They’re not pretentious.

They make you feel like a kid

If you let them 🙂 If you take dressing up less seriously just for one day.

Enjoy your spring. And sew a pair of bright red shorts. I dare you 🙂
