Ruffled Linen Shorts

I love this fabric. I bought a lot of it because I could not get enough of it. I decided to make these ruffled linen shorts for my daughter to wear in the heat.

They were pretty simple to make except for the linen frayed like no other. That made it more time consuming. Plus my serger will not gather fabric anymore for some reason. I need to take it in and see what is up. Gathering by hand is way more time consuming and messy in my opinion because it always frays everywhere, or the thread breaks.
Other than that they were quite simple. I will try making some more and post a tutorial or something. I also have a tutorial for a cute red dress made from repurposed tanks. I might get that posted by the end of the week. Until then, have a fabulous week and I will try my hardest to get that tutorial asap.


  1. Those are absolutely adorable. And once again you are amazing. I love the fabric leaves. I might have to make that. Where did you get that fabric? It's perfect for my room.

  2. It is linen from Joann's actually. There is one in Idahofalls by Fred Meyers.

  3. I'm french, I love sewing but I thinck it's very hard to find beautiful fabrics in USA.
    I love your blog
