Hey guys, I’m really excited about today’s post! Today I’m joining in with Knock It Off, the hit series from Elegance and Elephants. The purpose of this series is to choose a commercial item of clothing and sew it yourself. I love this for two reasons:
- I like saving a buck by making things myself.
- I like a challenge.
- My kids end up with cool stuff. (Ok, that’s three things).
Now, obviously, my shorts don’t look exactly like the Quicksilver pair. I went for a more interpretive look this time. My goal with these knockoffs is always to use fabric easily available (a.k.a. from my local Joann’s store), and a style I know my son will wear.
Mission accomplished. (Also, I have no idea why he’s doing yoga, but he’s so cute it doesn’t matter).
Thanks so much for reading! Be sure to head over to Elegance and Elephants for more Knock-it-Off inspiration. There are some truly amazing ladies sewing in this series. And if you’re knocking something off yourself, add it to the Flickr Pool! Thanks for reading, friends!
