It’s Like Wearing PJ’s All Day

When Mandalynn of Striped Swallow Designs hinted during the testing for the girls coachella shorts that she would be releasing a women’s version I was sold.  The girls shorts were an easy sew and since I used knit for Sophie’s shorts I already had fabric ideas swirling.  Lucky for me Mandalynn picked me to test the women’s version.

My original plan was to make a version out of the same pony fabric I made Sophie’s out of but then while walking the aisles of Joann’s looking for something else I came across this double sided black and white knit and knew it had to be a pair of Coachella’s for me.

When Mandalynn of Striped Swallow Designs posted a picture of her first pattern, Coachella Shorts, I jumped at the chance to test them.  They are seriously cute and I was excited about supporting a fellow Pattern Workshop student.

Since I do my best sewing while the kids are napping I decided to see if I could get the pattern completed from start to finish while the kids were down.  You know what it was easy peasy to get done and I even had time to spare.
