Maritime Shorts by Grainline Studio

By Sarah 

What an adorable pair of shorts! Yes, they are basic in design, but choose a fun, interesting print and voila, you are sure to stand out! We chose a hot pink home dec weight in the 'heath' print by Alexander Henry for our store sample. They are a size 10 if anyone wants to come in to the store and try them on for fit. It's a happy, summery pink and we love it! 

If you like to wear your shorts longer, the pattern suggests simply extending the legs to your desired length. A cute idea for a denim version is to leave the hem unfinished and let em' fray baby! 

Grainline's instructions are spot on and one could whip these up in 2 to 4 hours depending on your experience, speed and eagerness. 

Even if you aren't planning to sail the open sea in the Maritime shorts, they will certainly suffice for a little feet dangling in the pool. Happy summer everyone!
