Pietra Shorts – First Attempt

Spread the love

Sorry for the sudden lack of updates again. I have a bad habit of using my excessive screen time for work as an excuse to not want to update my blog. I’m really trying to do better.

About a month ago, I finished my first sewing project; the Pietra Shorts by Closet Core Patterns. This pattern seemed beginner friendly and I liked the style of the shorts. In particular, I’m a big fan of the front, the pockets, and the waist band. That’s pretty much the whole thing, right? Also, there’s two alternative versions for tapered ankle length and wide-leg pants as well. It seemed like they would make a great addition to my wardrobe.

I am happy to report that the pattern was easy and it didn’t take forever for me to make. I ran into trouble on the pockets, but Closet Core Patterns uploaded a great tutorial (here) that helped me make it over the hump. Since I am a beginner, I sometimes run into trouble visualizing 2D pieces into 3D. However, the more I practice, the easier it gets.

These were made using a light chambray fabric. I’m not a fan of shorts personally (loooong story), but these are comfy so I like to wear them to visit my plants. I’m planning to make the cropped length pants and another version of these in a slightly longer length.

And that’s all!

Until next time,
