March Design, Part One

Goal #1 from my 13 in 2013 list: 
Design something new every week in January (for Spring), March (for Summer), June (for Fall), and September (for Winter). 
Note: March designs will be for Summer and Fall, as I am working on my Fall Line this month.

Design #1 (week of Feb 24 - Mar 2)

Bermuda-length Shorts with Contrast Bands

I love a good pair of Bermuda shorts in the summer! 
When it's warm, but I haven't been biking in a while, long shorts provide coverage AND cuteness!

But, seriously, does any normal woman look good in short shorts? No. Unless, of course, she has super skinny legs or is under 12 years of age. For the rest of us, there are Bermudas :D

These long shorts have an extra cute factor: contrasting bands! Can you imagine brown shorts with ivory/pink calico cuffs and waistband? I want to wear them now!

These shorts will be comfortable and adjustable, with 2" wide elastic in the waistband. The elastic is wide enough that they won't look like those unflattering elastic-waist jeans. No need for a zipper--just a drawstring.

My plans are to make this design in lightweight (but not see-through) fabrics and contrasting bands. Or, with eyelet cuffs of the same color (like white eyelet on white twill).


  1. I love the design, Faith.


  2. I think they will be cute! I would like them in linen with a simple printed bands.

  3. Oh my gosh Faith, yes, bring back Bermudas! I can never find a pair of shorts that I am comfortable wearing. Either too short on the legs or too short at the waist. I love the contrast bands :-)

  4. Will the waistband be like the sweat pants that have both elastic and drawstring?

    Get busy on the new Fall Collection.........
