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!!
