SO i’m not sure if you remember – but when i first chatted to you all about Tania i mentioned that one of the first samples i made was too short.
Well, my dears, say hello to the too short shorts erh culottes hehehe
As you know, i like my hemlines short – but this is too far for me. yep.
It was one of the first samples i made of the Tania culottes and i thought i was ready to crack out the “good” fabric – that is until i realised that the pattern at that point was too short. SIGH. It’s okay though, it’s winter right now, so i’m wearing them with opaque tights – but once summer hits i’m going to add some 2″ wide eyelet lace to the hem and i think that will solve my little problem. I’ll be damned if i’m going to give up – i just love this fabric too much to waste a garment made from it (anyone else get emotionally attached to good fabric?! not just me surely…)
Anyone got any hot tips for lengthening too short shorts/skirts?! Thoughts?
