Shorts and tees are my go-to gear for getaways to hot climates.
These new camo Maritime shorts were my pick for this month’s Minerva Crafts project.
Grainline Maritime shorts work for me and this blue print has just the right mix of colours that I can pair with other clothes that I’ve made.
Can you tell?
I’ve used pale pink poplin for the pocket lining because I wanted to have something girlie about them.
I felt the back pockets needed to clash as much as the fabric print does so you can see the work on these pockets.
No pattern matching was required.
I know these shorts work well because the grey shorts from my Minerva Crafts Summer travel set get worn a lot.
The details about these shorts are in the previous blog post here.
I have included a sway back adjustment and short centre front seam adjustment to the pattern so a size 6 with these adjustments works every time.
My convertible backpack bag using Sacotin patterns from last year’s project has been a workhorse travel piece too.
The Art Gallery fabrics wash so well as does this camo fabric.
Throw in the zip front jacket I made in a previous Minerva Crafts project and a couple of tops and I’m ready to hit the road for another travel adventure.
Thanks again Minerva Crafts.
