Tap shorts

Wednesday, June 18, 2014

In the spirit of summer.... I made shorts :)  !!!!!!!!!!
The pattern is Katy & Laney tap shorts.

 I must say they were really easy and the instructions were awesome. There are 3 styles to choose from, and instant download!  = instant gratification!
 I chose view C.  Mostly because I had the right size zipper and couldn't wait to get to the fabric store.
High waist anything always appeals to me so these shorts were a no brainer!

I Made a size 6 according to my measurements and they are almost perfect on me. Next time I'll grade them from a 4 in the waist to 6 in hips.
Aren't they awesome :)

I really love the look of menswear and I am slightly obsessed with suiting fabric. This fabric is a stripe herringbone. It has a little stretch in it, maybe that's why the waist is a little big on me. Not sure.

This was my first time installing a fly front zipper and the instructions were so good. 
The only issues I had making these ... Is that I used fabric that looks exactly the same on both sides. (oops)
My seam ripper was my best friend even though I usually despise that little thing. I sewed a few pieces on the wrong side a few times, ughh.
 It definitely took me all day to complete since I am really mostly an advanced beginner. But I think the next pair will be super fast. I can't wait to try!! 

I definitely will skip stripes next time.  See the back dart?  One of my stripes got eaten up. Whoops. Hello beginner.

I'm proudly sporting them today :) 
Xoxoxo, Lisa
