Instead of working on my June Capsule Collection, I've been forced to enter the sports arena. Yes, Sports!!! I must admit that I am clueless when it comes to sports, but the men in my life are forcing me to take part.
The pattern is Simplicity 4639 (00p), consisting of pants and shorts. I used cotton fabric. The pattern is a piece of cake just two pieces, drawstring and some serging and its a wrap. They love them so much, that I had to go out and buy more fabric, but I played it safe and purchased plaids....haha!
My dh, db & dd are sports FaNaTiCs!!!, they watch any and everything, from baseball, tennis, football, golf, nascar, boxing... I could go on and on. When you enter a room you are guaranteed to find a tv tuned to a sport...ughhh!
I've had to endure late nights of sports gathering, where the noise level could force you to call the Popo...lol.
My db was kind enough to take me to the fabric store and while hanging out with me he mentioned he would love lounge shorts. I said oh... ok, I told him to pick out what he wanted and I'll make them. Well he came rolling back with 24s & 88s........lol. I looked at him then the fabric and said what in the world is that? He chuckled and said this fabric is a must... gotta have some these...lol
They are serious nascar fans and what would make their day is sporting lounge shorts while they hang out in the backyard.
Here they are tinkering with my hooptie....lol
Now back to the sewing machine to make some for dad.
