McCall 6328, View F — Finished!
Guys, I finished these shorts and they are AWESOME. I did a deep hem rather than roll cuffs and two buttons for a closure instead of two hook and eyes (I extended the waistband a bit so there would be enough room). Am I the only person who can’t stand all the pattern instructions that call for hooks and eyes when buttons would be better? GAH. You really don’t see that many trouser hooks on RTW. Anyway, TA-DA!
I think this might be one of my favorite things I’ve made. They’re totally practical, everyday bottoms but just what I need. The material is a black stretch sateen from JoAnn’s; in my experience, their stretch sateen is one of their better fabrics and it really works well in a multitude of patterns.
Urgh, I just realized everyone can see the messy bathroom. What can I say? It’s laundry day. We have a baby shower tomorrow and a trip to San Francisco to pack for, so I won’t be doing Sci Fi Sunday this week. I know I missed my Summer Playlist post yesterday, but I have a really good reason — our dear friends S and L got married! And since they are the best couple ever, and I’m feeling completely sappy today after watching their kids and our kids dancing all night, I’m gonna post one of my favorite sappy love songs. Hey, you’ve been warned.
