Sweet Summer Shorts Saturday, July 18 2015

Creation: Sweet Summer Shorts

Fabrics Used: Butterscotch Interlock and Swedish Tracing Paper

The Visionary: Karly, Paisley Roots

Our Thoughts:  Karly from Paisley Roots made a pair of adorable summer shorts for her little girl using our Butterscotch Interlock. So sweet!



I have a confession to make. This is the first organic cotton I have ever used. I know, I know, but lovely fabric is harder to come by when the closest fabric store is over an hour away!

I got a yard of Butterscotch Interlock, along with some Swedish Tracing Paper (again another first!). The Swedish Tracing Paper is a complete game changer. Especially since I have to adjust every pattern I make for every single child, not to mention myself when I actually get around to making clothing for myself...

This has made adjusting the patterns so easy. I haven't had a chance to sew it up yet, but it's very durable and having that option is amazing. It's absolutely going to be a staple in my sewing notions from now on.


So back to the Butterscotch Interlock. I chose to make the Mini Hudson's for Zoe and now I am really hoping that I have just enough left to make myself a pair as well. They are so incredibly soft and Zoe kept mentioning how super comfy they were. I think it's the perfect weight for these little shorts.


This fabric has also held up wonderfully in the wash. I didn't notice any fading nor any shrinking which is huge for knits!


I have my eye on these other interlocks:


They would be so cute for the billion other Mini Hudson's I have planned!
I wasn't sure what to expect with the Swedish Tracing Paper, and it really deserves all the raves it gets, along with the organic cotton. Now if I could just convince them to open shop where I live.....
