Shorts On The Line

shorts on the line button

I love short shorts....

Starting TODAY, imagine gnatsDesigns by Sessa, and small + friendly will be hosting "shorts on the line", a summer sewalong.

And guess who will be part of it....yep, ME! My shorts tutorial will be featured on July 10th. I hear my Aussie & Kiwi readers saying 'but it's winter!'. Think of it as a chance to get ready for summer AND possibly win some cool prizes!

Here is a special sneak peek of my project -

For the first three weeks in July, there will be guest posts with shorts inspiration, tutorials, and pattern reviews. Those sewing along at home will have a chance to be featured in the sewalong round-up posts in the last week of July.... and some *great* prizes, including fabric, patterns, and gift certificates!

  1. Just the THOUGHT of shorts is enough to give me the chills in the depths of an Aussie winter... though it *would* be a good jump start on summer wardrobes for the small people...
