Busy Busy Busy

My sewing progress isn't moving quite as fast as I would like it to because, once again, I've been working crazy hours at THE JOB - cue ominous music, something like DUN DUN DUN.  In any case, I have faith that things will eventually slow down enough for me to lead a normal life for a little bit at least.  I may even get to take my long awaited vacation.  In the meantime, I thought I'd share a little bit of what I have planned. 

This summer I've been wanting to make shorts shorts shorts!  Well fitted fabulous shorts!  I've picked Vogue Pattern V8365 to start, view A specifically with cuffs and a flat front.  There are so many visions of shorts that I have bouncing around my head: leather, lace and boucle tweed to name a few.  For this version I think the tweed look would do quite nicely. 

Chanel's 2011 Spring RTW collection has a few examples of a boucle tweed short.  These are two of my favorite.  My version, however, will have a bit more coverage involved.  Although, the second pair above could work well - maybe on my second shorts go-around.

On my trip to the fabric store there were a number of - very expensive - boucle tweeds that caught my eye, but then I saw this lovely LINEN.  Yes, linen.  Cooler for summer, cheaper for the pocketbook and still with the tweed look I was going for.  I think they'll go perfect with my new lace shirt when they're done.
