I made this linen shorts several days ago because I need something to wear at home. The linen fabric is only 50 cm, bought already cut and it’s only about $2.
The pattern is Jane from Burdastyle, which is very simple and easy. The fabric wasn’t enough, so I only added 1 cm for the hem and folded it inside, then I sewed a row of cotton lace on it. The cotton lace is from 100 yen shop, talking about cheap project!
I kinda like the first picture, it looks like a picture of a pair of limbs without a body! Very funny. Usually I took pictures in my bedroom, and it means that I have to take all the mattresses out of the room. Today I’m a bit tired to do all of that, so I took pictures in my sewing room. The space is smaller and the lighting is not as good as the other room, but I guess the pictures turned out okay.
This is the chair that I use when sewing, the sewing room used to be my husband’s computer room when he was living a single life. Now the room including the chair is mine. He moved downstairs and now has to work on his notebook while sitting on the floor. Poor husband.
I sit by the window when I’m sewing, and often take a peek outside to see if Sidra come back from school. I can see him walking along the river from a distance. I love seeing him walking there, sometimes he takes time examining something on the ground or stopping to see the ducks on the river. Then when he gets nearer, I would call his name and wave at him. He would wave back and call my name. That would be the little highlight of my day.
