Yesterday I shared my colourblocked leggings and today it’s non-colourblocked bike shorts! These shorts (and the resultant combo) was inspired by this great set from Dressing Dawn. Is this summer the summer of bike shorts and oversized shirts? It may well be.
The fabric I used here is actually swim fabric from The Fabric Store here in NZ, but it’s no longer listed online. I suppose this means that I could make a matching Banksia Bralette and make these bad boys my beachwear for the year.
I want to point out the yardage for the shorts view of the Loxton Leggings, which is 1m for Sizes A-F or 1.2m for Sizes G-M. There’s not many patterns in fat sewing where you can use a metre of fabric to clothe you (or, the bottom half of you anyway), so I always particularly enjoy when our yardage is especially thrifty!
The fabric isn’t as nice to wear as the supplex from my other leggings. It doesn’t have any of those nice sweat-wicking properties, it’s less thick (so feels closer to undies) and makes me feel a bit sweaty… So, my plan is to hunt down some brown supplex so that I can make these my pool shorts and make a pair that’s more comfie for day-to-day wear.
