The shorts went together fairly well, and I made sure to work again from stash, as I basically had to! I used the same corduroy I used here, and thanks again to Brianne of the Cookies 'n Bees blog for that gift! I used a fun extra button I had lying around, courtesy of the time I made the Sunnyside sweater. For the fly facing and waistband facing, I used a bit from the Daphne Knickers I just made, too!
When I make this outfit, I like to make two tees - killing the birds and stones and making it more versatile/colorful! I actually used the brightly colored stripes another time I made this, too (pictured in this blog post), but I had enough, so, I gave it another go! As always, I do not hem the shirt or sleeves.....keepin' it real, y'all. As it was, the serger was making me insane. It preferred sewing with the bright stripes, in general, but when I attached the neckband, it was hating life, and it then preferred the pink stripes, LOL. Also, I don't know that I'll ever get a perfect neckband, but whatever. I'll move on with my day ;)
As always, days in the life....
