Pairs of shorts

I do not know what the word is when you have multiple pairs of shorts. Specifically, I have two pairs of shorts. Is it correct to say that I have a pair of a pair of shorts? Let me wander out of this endless loop and show you these.

The denim is about .75m of leftovers from this skirt. You may recall I came by an affordable quantity of it at the last K&S show. I think I have gotten good use out of it. I know I showed these before, but I wanted to show them with the red polka dot blouse. How I love this blouse! It is so much fun.

I used leftovers to make the pockets so I get a funny kick wearing the two together. I’m sad like that.

Here is the other pair. A metre of cotton from Murphy Sheehy’s for maybe €8. The pattern is my old reliable, Burda 6/11.

My best pair yet, I think. I made the legs longer by 10cm which turned them into a slightly more all-purpose garment. I wore them for much of the summer and especially in Switzerland. They are so comfortable. The top is the Jasmine blouse I talked about here.

That wraps up my summer sewing I’m afraid. I hope to show some of my Autumn plans before the weekend so stick around :)
