Op Shop Sewing Finds...

A trip to the Lions Club of Berowra Op Shop almost always results in fabulous finds and additions to my sewing stash. Not only are they cheaper than the larger Op Shops (Thrift Stores), but everything is so well organised.

Oliver + S Sunny Day Shorts ~ Adding a Leg Band

In the middle of our Australian Summer, I made two pairs of Oliver + S Sunny Day Shorts. I knew that before shorts wearing weather finished, I would make another pair, but with some modifications. I wanted to add contrasting bands to finish off the legs.
