City Gym Shorts are a free & best of all easy pattern!
In the past, I haven’t been too into making garments, but it’s quite possible I had so much fun making these that I bought a serger!! I blame Amber & Mai. They had their sergers out while we were making the shorts & let me just tell you how much easier & quicker it went with serging.
Don’t you just love how my shorts turned out?? I’m pretty impressed with them, but there is a story…
After getting these babies all cut out, nicely serged, and bias tape sewn on, I headed over to the cutting table so Amber could show me the next step. When all of a sudden, we realized I had two butts! Seriously! I was so mad at myself. I even looked to make sure I wasn’t cutting two of the same pieces, but I surely did anyway!
At that point I needed to head to an appointment, take a breather, & re-group before I was going to rip them out. Good thing I had that extra time because turns out the size I cut probably would have been a little snug fitting had I cut what I was supposed to.
I ended up finishing what I had & they fit perfectly! Thank goodness! I really wasn’t looking forward to ripping them out. So sometimes two wrongs do make a right!
I do however feel like our supervisor should have better informed me of my mistake, in the beginning. If only she could talk. She was looking rather cute on the job though!
I’ll be making her a pair next!
Here’s a peek at the rest of the crew’s. Didn’t they turn out cute!
