With all that I have on my plate right now, I told myself I was good on patterns (and mostly fabric) right now….. then I saw Greenstyle’s Moxi Shorts pattern and caved (I also picked up the optional compression shorts, because why not?).
I haven’t ever sewn with this pattern company before, but I’ve heard a lot of good things about them. Since I tend to wear a lot of this style shorts over the summer, I couldn’t resist finally trying them out. But what really pushed me to get this pattern was this blog post (her shorts are featured on the left) – she made quite of few of these during testing in a variety of fabrics and gave the lowdown on what worked best, tips & tricks, etc. I liked it so much, I even picked up two of her recommended fabrics (the Nicole Miller Stretch Chiffon and Geometric Stretch Twill) both of which were on clearance (woot, sale!).
Jalie also came out with a pattern hack for the their Vanessa Pant that transforms them into an adorable pair of jogger shorts…. after I finish sewing up a few of the items I have on my list, I think these will be next!
