Scallop Edged Shorts – Finishing off the Spring Collections!

I was going to end Chloe’s Spring Collection with her circle skirts, but it just seemed like such a let down after all the hype that has been surrounding these Spring Collections!

I have had so much fun creating them, and have been so honored with all of the recognition they have received. Knowing that you have enjoyed them too has meant all the world to me! So to do the collections justice and finish them off with a bang, I whipped up one last minute addition. Scallop Edges Shorts!

While browsing my local fabric shop, I stumbled across this Tommy Hilfiger look alike fabric…such a smooth cotton and at 30% off! Score. Not something I would normally purchase, but I had a project in mind that I knew this would make perfectly preppy. That project has yet to be made…lol, because when I woke up 2 days ago I had visions of Scallop Edged Shorts dancing in my head.

They only needed the seam ripper once, lol – which in my terms means they were pretty easy to make for a first hand try at it.

Now don’t get me wrong, we L-O-V-E circle skirts with a passion in our house…

I just didn’t think it was necessary to offer a tutorial on something you can find in many other places! A couple of my favorite are Dana Made It – To Market Skirt, and House on Hill Road’s Twirly Skirt.

Thank you so much for joining me on my Spring Collection journey! For a complete rundown with tutorial links of Sienna’s, Madeline’s & Chloe’s Spring Collections – click HERE.

Next week I will show you what I have been making for myself in the midst of this kid’s clothes madness. Can we say Maternity clothes?! Yeah!!! A little something for myself for Mother’s Day.

Hope everyone is having a great Thursday, and until next time – Happy Sewing!

    I really love these. do you think i can make these with an elastic waist band tucked in, instead of a zipper, so that they can be pulled up and down? I’m a new sewer, but that should be easier than installing a zipper yes?

      definitely Angie! I would just allot a little more room in the waistband when cutting the pattern, to allow space for the elastic waistband!
