Please Welcome to My Closet - The Shorts

I'm happy to introduce to you, in their second life, the shorts!

Thank you J4 for the photos.

Not only did I shorten them, but also sewed shut all the pockets, front and back, and cut them out. The results leave much smoother lines.

The partnership with the lace top made it much more lunch with the girls than a run to the grocery store and was a nice surprise. (I really haven't worn the top as much as I would have thought.) I think they would also look good with a chambray shirt...I'll probably thrift around for one.

The location turned out to be another fun surprise! Being from a family who camped a lot as a child, I've always felt that forests were a little magical. I can't wait to go back without heels on for an actual hike!

Nice work. And I'm all about sewing pockets closed -- like I need those big gaping openings RIGHT on my hips!

They turned out great! I constantly remove pockets too, especially from white bottoms. Loooooove the lace top! My 2 obsessions right now are utility and lace.

i like how the colour of yours shoes almost bounce off the colour of the lace top. in simple terms i think they compliment each other.
