Abakhan Fabrics Sewing Seams for £15

Hello

Oh BOY, is this a overdue post or what!!

As some of you may know I am MEANT to do a monthly Sewing Seams For Fifteen (SSFF) I won’t embarrass myself by saying how long this post has been in the making!!

If your new to my SSFF, This (From now on)  is a monthly show and tell, on making lovely things for £15, may that be something for me, my boys, Mr.P or my home. I will have all the links if you fancy a go too… Abakhan Fabrics have a fab online shop, and deliver everywhere! If you have a shop near by I suggest you save your sewing pennies and just dive in!

Anyways enough of all that!!!

On to the juicy sewing stuff!

I chose a pair of shorts, I NEVER sew for me so this was a fun…

So here we are… Do you like the linen?!?! I love the shade &  the weave is fantastic..

I have to say I am a massive fan of Kwik Sew Patterns, their pattern paper is so  durable, Have you used them before??

SSFF #3 4 003

 I had lots of fun picking up the facings with this project… I stopped in my tracks when I seem this, How cute is it!!!

I done this part on holiday hence the non overlocked edge & blurry photo (my phone)

nOW 013

I loved the pattern from the start, but these pockets are just lush, They are deep enough for stuff not to fall out!

And look at the detail on this corner, isn’t it just divine!

And here we are all sewn up…. Do you see the facings there, it’s the same fabric as the pockets but in a differnt colour way! I am such a fan… I’ve even kept the teeny tiny scraps JUST in case I can use them for something!

Here’s the front view. They are a great length, I have to say some of the shorts that are out at the mo are TERRIBLE….. I mean do you really have to see so much of the bottom!! I feel old!

Another Close up shot…. I’m a stickler for seams matching up, I think it’s because I used to be soooo bad at them!!!

And here is the lovely facing fabric again…. Do you love it?!?!? I like having a secret in my sewing and this totally hits the spot!

Did I say I loved the pockets already?!?!?!? That tiny squared off edge…. Just lush!

So that’s my SSFF #3

I have to say, I have a vague excuse for this taking so long to sew/post… I made a rookie mistake, I cut it a size too big, body dis-morphia or what!! So I lost my mojo when I was half way through.

Anyways, on to the numbers…

Kwik Sew K3614 

£8.99

Linen

There is a few options, I was in store and got a meter for

£3

6 inch zip

£0.64

Hook and eye

£1.34

Thread

£0.65

TOTAL = £14.62

Not bad for a custom pair of shorts!!

(I have to edit here, the facing fabric was in my stash. But can be purchased here. A quarter meter would do it! )

Anyways, that’s Sewing Seams For Fifteen #3 done and dusted.

I promise you, me and Will, SSFF #4 is en-route!

    Those are really cute shorts. I love the contrast facing. My post today also addresses facings but mine are turned to outside :). BTW, your sewing is impeccable.
