Why aren’t they more popular/common?
They’re so frigging awesome! The cuteness of a skirt with the practicality and security of shorts.
The best of both worlds!
The #203 Ladies Sport Skort from Thread Faction is the perfect example of it.
I’m not a big fan of wearing leggings or sports shorts with tank tops because I’m too self-conscious about my bum, so I tend to pair them with long shirts that cover it.
With leggings that isn’t an issue, but with shorts it’s a bit weird because most of the times the shirt will hide them and it ends up looking like I’m not wearing bottoms…
The #203 is the perfect solution!
The pattern comes with different skirt options:
You can also mix and match them, have a straight front with a pleated back, for example.
The skort also features an optional zippered pocket on the back yoke, a super handy dandy detail.
Other features are:
- elastic waistband;
- shorts have no side seams;
- two inseam lengths.
I made the straight skirt (front and back) with the longer inseam shorts.
I’m seriously in love with this!
If I’m being honest, sports are not really a constant occurrence in my life (#shameonme), but will definitely be wearing this quite often during summer. It’s perfect for days at the lake with the kids!
