It’s hot. It’s been hot since May, maybe even April. It never ceases to amaze me how long and scorching the summers are here in Texas. And really, I could wear shorts most of the year and yet I find myself always, always unequipped.
I need shorts. Or better yet, I want shorts that I actually want to wear.
I started the Burda Stretch Drawstring Shorts but then I saw the Chi-Town Chinos and I want them too! And what’s most exciting is that the sewalong begins this week. This will be my first sewalong and I am super excited to participate. There is a lot to be learned during the next few weeks and I’m thrilled.
I viewed Inside the Hem’s video on choosing the best fabric for shorts. The last thing I need is another pair of saggy-butt shorts. Ugh. The worst. So I am most definitely going to take her advice to choose a fabric with no stretch whatsoever. I think I’m pretty set on the Milestone Brushed Twill in Cerise from Style Maker Fabrics because, the color! I also love the Cayenne and Goldenrod.
I also like her suggestion to use the Poly/Rayon suiting because it’s lighter but I’m unsure about the houndstooth. Let’s see what I feel like when I finally do shell out the $$$.
So that’s my Monday Must Have. My focus is on bottoms because this is where I have the hardest time with fit. I’m upping my summer shorts game or, at least, I have high hopes of doing so.
Have a great week!
