First swim shorts

With the new collection of Jalie my husband was one of the lucky receivers of his very own swim shorts. The Victor swim shorts (4133) by Jalie are great for swimming but also for casual shorts for the men in your life. The most difficult part of sewing these swim shorts were finding the right fabric. I wanted a fun fabric with a cool design that my husband would like. This was quite a challenge!

In the end I found swim shorts fabric in Poland at Dresowka. This webshop includes a large variety of fabrics, among which a large selection of woven fabrics for bermuda shorts & swim trunks. The fabric is quick-drying and does not absorb water so perfect for swim shorts.

Swim shorts with elastic in the waistband, optional drawstring, pockets at the side seam and mesh lining. My husband has been using his new swim shorts the last week during our almost daily swimming in Italy and loves them. The fabric is perfect and the fit is great. He loves the pockets (although it of course forms the danger of leaving things behind in your pockets before jumping in the pool…).
