It’s getting to be shorts weather…

So this is probably a good time to remind y’all (especially newer readers) of how easy it is to sew wrap shorts.

I’m a tall and fairly Generously Proportioned woman, and I can make these things in maybe  a yard and a half of material. Anyone shorter and less attractive to Sir Mixalot could get away with significantly less fabric. And you can make them in whatever length you like–I have long pants, capri-length, knee-length, and actual shorts.  (Bear in mind that the shorter you go, the more you need to pay attention to modesty, because they can flop open a little bit.  With anything knee length or longer it’s probably no issue, but actual shorts you need to watch out!)

So even if you can barely sew at all, if you have a sewing machine and some fabric (jammy bottoms with a repurposed bedsheet isn’t a bad idea for your first go at this, especially if you’re nervous about the sewing part), check out my tutorial from last year and give it a go!
