I've had my eyes on this adorable pair of shorts (err, shorts pattern) for ages. And ... I was looking at my current skorts on the line and they're really sad. Really really really sad. I know I only wear them to do yard work, but yikes. (There are holes).
So. Finally sucked it up and bought the pattern. It is soooo cute. I want you all to picture me waving this at you and squealing. Here you go:http://www.wearinghistorypatterns.com/rita-pleated-shorts-late-30s-40s-style/ Now. "Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!" Also, bounce. ;)
Oh sure I don't have them MADE. And I have quite the sewing queue .... but still. Aren't they just darling?
Yes, those are really shorts. Shorts with big huge box pleats so that it looks like you're wearing a mini-skirt, but it's shorts. :D
What's really cool (for me.... muahahaha) is that she's going to stop selling paper patterns for a while (she still sells downloadable patterns) to concentrate on her RTW line. But I have a paper pattern. Muahahaha! And it's cute.
She's even localish - so I'm shopping small business and local. :D Yeah, nothing bad here. Oh, except I gotta make 'em. ;) But that's probably not bad.
