Strawberry Swim Shorts

Too hot to model!




I used a knit fabric picked up at a local thrift store awhile back. The drawstring is finger-knit cotton yarn, and the grommets seemed an easier solution than button holes, particularly as my button hole plate needs replacing. I used the same pattern as my bloomers but went off the grid by pinking the hem and simplifying the waistband. I'm expecting a pool party soon, and if not that, there's a rope swing over the river that's been calling my name all summer! Happy August, ya'll!
