Women's Coachella Shorts - Slim Fit Version

April 21, 2015 1 Comment

When Girl Charlee came out with their awesome pineapple fabric, I knew it would be perfect for Coachella Shorts! Since I decided to go with the pineapple denim I wanted the shorts to be a closer fit than all my other Coachella Shorts. The Women's Coachella Shorts were drafted to be more of a relaxed fit, which works great with knit and other fabrics with good drape. So I went ahead and just sized down for the denim and they fit great!

I then decided to draft up a Slim Fit version, which is particularly beneficial for those that measure XS and wanting a closer fit since they would not be able to simply size down. Here are a few of the Slim Fit versions my testers created...

Ashley (Magically Stitched)


Megan (The Northern Belle)




 Kayla (Just Grin and Wear It)

Independence Day is right around the corner, and so with it comes Wild + Wanderful's Sew Americana Blog Tour!  I follow this tour every year, so I'm really excited to be participating in it for the first time.

Nothing says "summer sewing" over here at SSD quite like the Emerie Romper, and wheI think Americana, I think of the peace and love, tie-dye vibe of the 70s. As it turns out, I happen to be a big lover of dying things.

Daybreak - Swimsuit Hack
Daybreak - Swimsuit Hack

May 21, 2019

Soon after the Daybreak release there was an inspiration post made in the Striped Swallow Designs' facebook group of a tankini swimsuit that looked very similar to the Daybreak for the top. My daughter had a school field trip coming up to the waterpark the following week and I knew it would be perfect so I set out on making one the next day. (The photo on the right is from Swimfully.) I used the Into the Blue for my bottoms -- no mods, just skip adding the top of the ITB and they make super cute swimsuit bottoms.
