I usually dread the thought of shorts season. My post-mommy legs are not what they used to be and the idea of shopping for reading-to-wear shorts gives me blues. As women, our choices for store bought shorts can be lumped into two categories- so short you might as well be wearing bikini bottoms or poofy-pleated, over the knee golfer shorts. This year, I’m determined to get over my self-leg-hate and sew myself a few pairs of shorts. In my quest for handmade shorts, I’ll happily wear out-and-about, I’ve rounded up a list of DIY shorts patterns and tutorials.
