A couple weeks ago, I had the pleasure of testing Striped Swallow Designs’ very first pattern. I was so so excited. It’s my first time ever being a pattern tester! And my first time making shorts. These are so quick and easy to sew, and the results are just adorable.
Mandalynn did such a great job with this pattern. The instructions were clear and easy to follow and they are a perfect pattern for a beginning sewer. Sophie even helped me cut them out. Another thing I love about them is that you don’t need much fabric, so it makes it the perfect pattern to use up all those small little pieces of fabric I couldn’t ever bring myself to let go of. I actually made these from fabric from a dress I made Sophie awhile back that she’d outgrown.
When I shared my pics on instagram, my sister was like “I want a pair!” I said, “I know right?!? Me too, but the pattern only goes up to a girl’s 12 though…and I’m trying to figure out if I could squeeze my behind into it!” But if you’re like me and my sister and want a pair for yourself, don’t worry. A little bird told me that there’s a woman’s size pattern in the works. Yay!
This adorable pattern just released today, so make sure you head over to Striped Swallow Designs and grab one. I know it will be a favorite!
