Me-Made in Marigold

As Me-Made May winds down, I’m repeating garments from earlier in the month. I’m also reaching into the recesses of the closet for some less-popular items. Like these marigold linen clamdiggers:

These are the Bermuda Shorts with Cuffs from Happy Homemade See Chic. I lengthened them to clamdiggers – wide-leg trousers you wear when wading in the mud flats for clams. 

I like the cuffs and the fit on these. I don’t like the elastic waist, and I wish they had pockets. The pattern called for wide belt loops, which helps, but still I always wear these with an untucked top. I made these out of linen that had been in my stash forever. I keep meaning to make another pair out of a more sensible color.

I live in Connecticut, USA with my husband and my dog, in an old house outfitted with a sewing room, a garden, an orchard, and a big liquor cabinet.
