Project Run & Play Sew Along – Glam Shorts

Thursday, April 18, 2013

It’s the final week of Project Run & Play, and the theme of the week is spring formal wear. Can shorts ever be considered formal wear? Well, how about if you add a little shiny gold into the mix? When I saw these gold trimmed shorts, I pinned them wondering where in the world I could get gold bias tape. Not having a local Jo Ann's, I had no idea it was readily available. My mom came to my rescue and sent along both single and double fold gold bias tape.

Now, I personally think gold trimmings kick everything up a notch. I started with a basic shorts outline and drafted rounded edges, pockets and a new waistband. I referred back to this shorts tutorial for sewing up the shorts legs.

Just for a bit more sparkle, I painted on some gold glitter dots to a basic white tank around the neckline.
