City Gym shorts success! I’ve been seeing versions of these shorts popping up everywhere on blogs. Until now, I have been unsuccessful at making shorts, either because I somehow get brave and feel like I can wing something I have no actual knowledge about (I can’t) or because I start with a pattern but somehow veer off course partway through (also a fail). These were easy and fairly quick to go together. I printed out the downloadable pattern and cut and taped it together.
I like to keep the actual pattern intact and trace my size onto interfacing to use as my pattern. This way if I need a different size, I can just trace another size instead of more printing and cutting. Cutting and sewing went quickly, the only thing that took any time was making the bias tape, next time I will run out and buy a bias tape maker because hand doing it makes for crispy fingers!
The fabric is a Japanese print I bought awhile back from Bunny’s Designs and some Carolyn Friedlander crosshatch. I hope to make another pair soon as they make the perfect comfy jammie shorts!
