Simplicity 3813 - What I did with the scraps!

7:30 PM

Project Details:

Pattern: Simplicity 3813,views F & G (OOP)

View F - Capris:
Fabric: Denim
Notions: 7" zipper; denim rivets and a 5/8" snap

View G - Shorts:

Fabric: White stretch twill
Notions: 7" zipper; six 3/4" buttons and one 5/8" button.

This is a really great pattern that I've had in my collection for a while now. I had intentions on making these last year, but I never got around to it. I was going through my fabric scrap and saw that I had some nice pieces around 1 yd. It was just enough for these projects.

I didn't have to make any alterations. It's so much fun being able to sew something straight out of the envelope and having it fit. The only modification I made was to view F. Since I used denim, I did denim-style topstitching and added rivets. I didn't really use the instructions. Once you've made pants, you know what to do. I only used them for the tab placements on the shorts. I also used Sandra Betzina's method for the zipper.

Since I made this one twice this past weekend, I will not be making this again. It's out of print now, but if you have this pattern and a little, I highly recommend it.
