Thanks OhhhLulu Lingerie…..

FREE PATTERN ALERT!

Anyone who sews loves free stuff – right?

Well, luckily for us then, the lovely Sarah over at OhhhLulu Lingerie is offering her Hilda Bike Shorts free on Craftsy.com for the whole of July – just in time for the mini heat wave that has eventually arrived in the UK!  You will also love the amusing (and true) commentary regarding chafing 🙂

Now, if you like shorts for under skirts and trousers….or just for bedtime or modesty, then this lovely pattern is a winner.  I tested it out yesterday and am thrilled with the results….

Happily, I had this pretty cotton stretch fabric in my stash together with a few meters of this rather funky stretch lace that I had purchased on my recent trip to Abakhan in Mostyn.  I already had the FOE (fold over elastic) so didn’t even need to go out for anything – result!

After I had printed, joined and cut out the pattern – all two pieces of it!, it only took around half an hour to rustle up these pretty shorts….I adore them!

Definitely more of these in the very near future…after all, a girl doesn’t want to be caught out without practical and pretty under-garments in case the hot weather sticks around.
