CHOOSING A TEXTILE
This design (pairs well with lightweight to medium weight woven textiles. Linens/Tencel/cottons in 5-7oz weights would work well for casual lounge wear/beach cover up shorts. Consider sewing in a cotton poplin or lawn, or lightweight 3-4.5 oz linen for a pair of PJ shorts. For a more structured every day summer short, a medium weight cotton twill/denim, or medium weight linen could be a great option.
MATERIALS NEEDED SHORTS
- Textile (see yardage below)
- Knit or non-roll elastic (1.25'' wide) for waistband
- 1 spool of all-purpose thread
Fabric quantity does not factor in shrinkage in a fabric prewash. Add extra yardage to your fabric order depending on fabric type. Measurements are determined by plotting on 54’’ (137cm) wide grid, and 48’’ (123cm) wide grid electronically. Measurements are given in inch/cm metrics so that you may determine more precisely if you have enough fabric in your fabric stash although most (fabric stores sell fabric by the 1/2 or 1/4 yard/meter).
