Polka Shorties Ailakki

Pattern: Named Ailakki - size 36

Fabric: under 1m of Linen left over from Super blokes' shorts

Ease: Easier than implied on the pattern - Medium.

Tidbits: I was drawn to this pattern mostly because I love the cut of the pants, and whilst I knew the cross over top was very cool, no one needs to see my white belly so I was always thinking about what to wear underneath. The concept I decided on was a skinny collared shirt and hence I made my holiday shirt to meet this purpose! The shirt has been getting plenty of use whilst it waits for its quirky friend.

Score: Despite the quirks I my making like these way more than I thought I would, specially with a little extra coverage! 3.5/5

What a cute pattern for the young. Wouldn't look so good on a 75 year old (me). Flaunt it! Looks cute!
