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!
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.
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.
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 🙂
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 🙂

they are lovely! and your reasons are convincing, really, but I wouldn’t dare to sew a pair 🙂 not yet, maybe next spring, if I get all skillful? 🙂
They are very easy to sew. I bet you can make them without any major problems 🙂
Would that my thighs could handle shorts these days. Sigh. Maybe a new skirt will suffice. 🙂
You might be surprised of how happy your thighs would be 🙂
Epic resons. I will take this into consideration ^_~
