Summer has come early – where I am, at least. Last Sunday, temperatures soared to 34 degrees Celsius and I was literally melting into a puddle as I played mahjong with my cousins. Visions of powdery white sand, crystal blue waters, and clear skies filled my mind as I weeded out useless tiles from my pile. It made me long for Boracay, flowy dresses, and white linen.
Yes, white linen. For me, nothing quite captures the essence of summer as perfectly as white linen, whether it is a dress, a tunic, a pair of trousers, or the ubiquitous pair of shorts. And so one afternoon, I decided to put the remaining fabric from my simple tunic project to good use. To my delight, there was enough yardage to make a pair of wide legged trousers AND shorts. Without further ado, I started cutting and sewing, using my existing trousers sloper, drafted with the help of Dennic Chunman Lo’s Pattern Making. Here are my finished pairs of whities.
Fancy making yourself one (or a few?). Do come back in a few days for the tutorial.
See you back,
