City Gym Shorts

One of the blogs I follow is The Purl Bee, where you can find anything on sewing, crocheting, knitting and other things involving yarn and/or thread. Most of the time the posts are very inspiring and come with nice patterns. And every now and then I make something I found at The Purl Bee.

After a spring clean up of my cabinets I found this Hawaiian fabric, that I  bought a while ago. So long ago actually, that I had totally forgotten all about it. Don't even remember where I bought it. I haven't seen my sewing machine for quite some time either, but the combination of the fabric found and the inspiration I found on The Purl Bee, made me want to make this short.  I made the biggest size, because I like wide leg pants on shorts. The taille is elastic.

You can check out the (very easy) pattern at The Purl Bee. There's one for girls and one for women.


This week the Pink Unicorn I made for my youngest daughter was featured by Creating My Way to Success!!
