  • pink shorts for my daughter

    Yesterday I needed to make some and I had no idea what to make and I only had a small amount of farbric, mainly fat quaters but with a little digger I found some pink cotton.

    I made a pair of pink short with pretty flower lining for the pockect and added some ric-rac that I had lying around and an iron-on butterfly, it's great to use stuff I have stored for years to find a use for it, feel very proud that the only thing I had to purchase was a bit of elastic.

    I love sewing but I'm self taught and need to make the finish a little more polished. so what to I do with edges? for example the centre seam (inside) of my short has not been neatly finished so what should I have done? should I get an overlooker? or should I zig zig all the edges before I start? Off course from the outside it all looks find but I think with washing etc.. it may all fray.

      They are very nice. Well done, very professional looking. As for the seams you could zigzag them or use a bias binding. I used to zigzag mine when I made clothes for my children, but if you have a machine that has an over locking stitch it will stop them fraying.

        Beautifully made and very attractive trim too. She will love them
        God helps them that help themselves.

          aaah they are lovely, my daughter would love them! Really wish I could sew.
