Seamwork Magazine's Weston Shorts Pattern Review
(follow the link above to view and purchase this pattern)
How do they do it? Somehow Seamwork always knows exactly what I want to sew and wear right now. That is certainly true of the Weston Shorts pattern in the June issue. I printed the pattern and had two pair done up in no time. I have been wearing them constantly.
First up, a pair in dark blue chambray. I added a little length to give these a vintage bermuda shorts vibe.. Other than the length, I made no alterations, and found the PDF easy to assemble and the directions easy to follow. The directions for the zip fly are particularly clear and well illustrated.
My only criticism of the pattern is that it suggests you attach the buttons on the waistband before making the buttonholes. I always make the buttonholes first, then mark the openings onto the waistband underneath to get perfect button placement.
I'm wearing these with my Tilly and the Buttons Agnes tee top; another great summer pattern.
My second pair of Westons are in black denim.
Yes, I am copycating the model. I can just hear her singing,
"If I were you, I would want to be me, too."
And I do.
Goodbye low waisted shorts. I never liked you anyway.
