Lil Luxe Collection {Papillon Shorties}


Okay… So a while back I was on a short sewing spree and sewed up about 5 or 6 versions of the Papillon Shorties from the Lil Luxe Collection.  I hadn’t posted about it because I really just sewed them for fun because I was loving the pattern.  I thought I should go ahead and write up a little something because they are just too cute not to document.


If you don’t know this pattern, it features a scolloped flat front waistband with elastic back waistband.  Knife pleats and front pockets added to the scolloped front make this pair of shorts such a great make.  You can add trim to the scallops to spice up this make which is a fun feature that really makes the scallops pop.

I also used this pattern for my Art Gallery Blog tour.  You can read about that here.  Here is a little sneak for you.


Here are a few more of my makes from the pattern.



I’ve started some hacking of this pattern too. Here is the skirt version I stitched up using the waistband and a gathered skirt.  Super quick sew and LOVE that waistband.  My newest hack is going to be a wide leg pant version!  I’ve been dreaming about this hack and it will be coming soon.  I know it will be a perfect match for the Calabria Top.  That’s all for now.  If you are moving into warmer weather, you should probably check out this pattern.  It is a total keeper!!
