Amber & Emily and Their New Colette Iris Shorts!

Short shorts alert!

Emily and I just finished sewing up some new Iris shorts by Colette--they were so quick to make!

To be honest, I was a little nervous because this was the first time I have sewn a garment with legs, but I should have known that Colette would walk me through it and make it so easy!


I used a hemp/organic cotton ticking from Pickering and got a little crazy with the pockets, using a super adorbz little sewing notions print from Anna Griffin. I cut my Iris out with horizontal stripes, taking care to line up the stripes when I cut the pieces and sewed the seams. I love the way they turned out!


Emily's Iris shorts turned out fantastic! She used a hemp denim from Pickering and left out the pockets, so she could sew flat felled seams on the front. So cute!


Summertime, we're ready!

I love your shorts! Good job matching up those stripes! I also like the idea of leaving out the pockets. I've never done that kind of seam finish though. I'll have to learn! Do you know a good online tutorial?
Check out my iris shorts on my blog!
