The AMI Pattern is my literal favorite right now. I have a mini capsule collection in my closet now thanks to this pattern. The shorts are my second make. I was so intimidated with assembling the pants, now that I have a better idea of the steps, it made sewing the shorts more enjoyable and quicker.
I generally don’t wear shorts, because I find they are usually too short for my long legs. I always wear trousers or maxi skirts, but with the nice weather here, I decided to give the shorts a try. I like that these aren’t too short at all and have a classy look. Plus when you make your own, you can make it to your liking. Even though I made the trousers in this pattern collection, I went ahead and read through the instructions once more and prepared my pattern pieces accordingly.
I chose to work with CERAMIC Linen to complement the other colors I chose for the other patterns in this collection. It’s such a rich and vibrant tone. I also found it helpful to look at the trousers I had made during assembly if I got stuck. If you haven’t made trousers enough times it’s very helpful to look at a pair along with your instruction. For me, it’s a reminder of how the pieces come together in the end.
I paired my shorts with this oversized linen tee. It gave it a fun and relaxed look, perfect for having a fun day out in the sun. The fabric is so comfortable, It’s why linen is my all time favorite. I like that these shorts are also very versatile, I can pair them with a blazer for work or even a dressier top for dinner. I’m looking forward to my next make from the Ami pattern collection.
