Silly shorts I love thee

I finally cut into the adorably creepy fabric I had been hoarding since last year and I'm super happy I did because now I have awesome shorts! First let's have a closer look at said fabric:

 These ones remind me of some of my students^^

 If Dora underwent a little makeover...

 That guy on the left totally looks like my brother!

 Hey this is me!

It is some off-white medium-weight cotton sprinkled with cute and bizarre -but aren't we all- black and red characters that I found at Nomura and my only regret is that I didn't take the mint green version too, so as a meagre consolation I used bias tape in this colour to finish the legs :(
The pattern is this one except I used wide black elastic in lieu of a fabric belt so that I could skip the button and zipper on the side -I'm a little ashamed because I'm totally getting lazy with my sewing these days!

And of course how could I live without lilac hair all this time?!

  1. I am so jealous!!! What a cute piece of fabric. Great idea to make it into shorts.

    1. Awww thanks Rhonda, I definitely wish I had more of that fabric :)

  2. Ack! Those are SO CUTE!!!! Love 'em. I lived in Japan for 5 years, and moved back 2.5 years ago... and I could kick myself for not being into sewing clothes while I was there! Now I dream of the 7 story high fabric shops... and this time I wouldn't buy just fat quarters! Great use of a delightfully crazy print!

    1. OMG if I lived that long in Japan I'd probably end like Scrooge McDuck except I'd swim in fabrics instead of coins^^ I'm glad you liked the shorts!
