When Bonnie Christine asked if I’d be interested in sewing with some of her new line of fabric, Cultivate, I didn’t even hesitate to say yes. I’ve sewn with one of her previous lines of fabric before (you can see the projects here with this small poolside tote and Ella top) and loved the fabric so much. Bonnie’s lines are always a little feminine and each fabric coordinates without being matchy matchy.
My girl, Sweet Pea, has been growing like a weed so was in need of new shorts. I love to sew her things that will be reached for over and over, so I decided to sew her a new pair of city gym shorts.
I knew right away that row by row lit fabric would make the perfect binding with the stripes. I used flower field mist fabric for the front of the shorts, brown chambray for the back, and plotted farm autumn for the waistband.
I love how these shorts turned out. So much so that I started cutting out a second pair for my girl!
