Pink nylon shorts with matching satin binding.
Time : 2 days (both pairs took 1 day each)
Fabric: Each to work with but the satin binding wouldn’t press flat and had to be tacked.
If I was to make them again: This was the pair with the bigger waistband and so I would re sew the elastic but I ran out of time.
Overview: Even though these are still eye catching, these are the more toned down pair out of the two. I tried to keep with the bright theme but using a bright orange stitch. Perfect for the beach!
Nylon track suiting in flo pink with matching pink satin binding along the edge and side panels. With an elasticated waistband and orange top stitch throughout.
Here’s pair: one of the nylon track shorts that I made for a friend.
Time to make : 2 days.
Fabric : Easy to work with but the mesh was temperamental because of the stretch.
If I was to alter / make them again: I had problems with the elastic because one pair ended up bigged/wider than the others. They are both stretchy and so will fit.
Overview: I love the colours together and the combination of the trashy fabrics.
I wish I was brave enough to wear them!
