leftovers shorts








shorts - self made
shirt - vintage, from the '70s

never been a neat person..
i'll let the dishes pile up
i'll let the laundry pile up
damn.. i'll let everything pile up
and do nothing about it
until i'm in the right mood for it
(or until i'm called hoarder)
..
not too neat with my sewing neither
won't stress over wonky seams and uneven top stitching..
but there is one thing i'm obsessively neat about
and that one thing is pattern matching
i just love pattern matching!
and working with stripes and plaid and gingham
and all kind of repetitive patterns..
and these little shorts
(made out of leftovers from this kimono)
were a pure joy to sew
..
