Pattern: Butterick 5335 (view B) & Loes Hinse Oxford Pants (view B cropped to city short length)
Size: Top - size 8; Shorts - size S
Fabric: Top - floral and dot print rayon/lycra knit from Lucy's Fabrics; Shorts - dark brown linen/rayon blend woven from Fabric Mart.
Comments: I don't often wear shorts, but I do have the occasional need for them. So when I had a small remnant of the brown linen/rayon blend woven left over after using it for a few projects, I figured why not squeeze out a pair of shorts. I had my LH Oxford pants pattern nearby, so I folded up the legs and went to town. Quick and easy!
I have always loved a good raglan sleeve top and I'm always on the look out for the next great pattern. So, when I saw B5335, it was a no-brainer to give the cropped sleeved raglan tee a whirl. Well, I pronounce the experiment a huge success. This to fits very nicely and it uses less than a metre of fabric. I can see myself making more of these babies!
Conclusion: This is my last hurrah for summer clothing. Ah, parting is such sweet sorrow...
