City Shorts in Double Gauze

Comfy City Shorts in Double Gauze || a happy stitch

Mmmm, double gauze is like the ice cream of fabrics. It’s a double layer of soft, light, sweet goodness and I have made myself a pair of City Shorts so my skin can celebrate this fabric as much as possible.  Truthfully, these shorts are really for lounging but that is all the more reason to focus on comfort, cuteness and scrumptious fabric.

The fabric is, of course, Japanese.  It’s designed by Ellen Baker for Kokka as a part of her charms line in 2014.  I bought it on a trip to Portland, at the amazing Bolt.   It only gets softer when it’s washed so I look forward to falling deeper and deeper in love as time passes.  Even ice cream can’t promise that much. I used blue chambray for the trim and a sea green shot cotton for the waistband.  Essentially I used all my favorite types of fabric in one place because lounging should be like that. 🙂

These shorts are the final ‘make’ for my handmade summer wardrobe plan  and since it is October that is a very good thing. I’m looking forward to a re-cap of how the whole planning process went and what I decided to make and what I skipped.  I’m also excited to put together a handmade fall wardrobe plan but I think I might stick to a few key items because this fall is already filling up with classes and markets and things are going to get crazy.  As they usually do this time of year!

    I have been wanting to make something with double gauze just to see what it’s like. How does it hold up to washing? Those shorts are so cute!

      Thank you! It washed really well, even softer and more comfortable now.

      Thanks! Lounging is so important, it should always be done with luscious fabric…don’t you agree?!
