Shorts Shorts

I'm a big fan of Iggy Pop's radio show on 6 music and a few weeks ago he had a show themed around Fashion where he played Shorts Shorts by The Royal Teens. I was recently in Cyprus and everytime I wore my handmade denim shorts that song came into my head.

I used McCalls' 5263 (a 1950s pattern) to make the shorts, the same pattern that I used to make my red slacks and I picked up the denim chambray from a fabric shop in Walthamstow.

They are so comfy to wear and looked great down by the pool in my bikini. I find a high waist super flattering too.

  2. Hi, Sarah!

    I was 8 years old when "Short Shorts" shot into the top 5 on the U.S. chart. The record created quite a stir and remains one of the most memorable hits of the 50s. You look fabulous in your shorts and halter combination, dear friend, and it's great to see you again. Have a wonderful weekend, Sarah!
