Simple Life Pattern Co. and Sew Caroline Tour {A Designer Collaboration}

Magnolia Shorts-18

Hey friends!  I’m joining in to  celebrate the kick off of a designer collaboration between Simple Life Pattern Co. and Sew Caroline.  I won’t bore you with all the collaboration details because if you have been following, you already know them.   I’m just going to show of my version of the Girls Magnolia Shorts.

Magnolia Shorts-16

The Magnolia shorts are almost a culotte style short.  They are an absolutely quick sew with just a single pattern piece per leg and a waistband.  Friends, it doesn’t get much easier than this. They are perfect for light weight wovens with nice drape as well as knits.  I definitely do not recommend quilters cotton for these.  They kinda get a little “poofy.” I’m using a lightweight polyester here that I snagged from Hobby Lobby last year in the summer seasonal section.  I think it worked very well. I did have a little trouble with the double quarter inch fold hem.  I’m a little OCD and the thin fabric was not cooperatiing with my commands.  There are also two waistband options, woven and knit.
