Thanks dear Pamcasso (squareoldsoul.blogspot.com) and Kate (makedostyle.blogspot.com). They have both drawn up lists of essential wardrobe basics and as I only have one other pair of short shorts, I have been inspired to accomplish number 21 on Pamcasso's list -denim shorts.
As I had in excess of ten pairs of jeans, I thought I would do a touch of D-I-Y (do it yourself) and make a pair of denim shorts from a pair of Levi's 501's that I didn't wear much.
We are going to Eastbourne (a beach resort on the south coast of England) in August, so these will be ideal to wear on the beach-my days of wearing short shorts on the street are long gone-ha ha!! They will also do for wearing in the garden on hot days when we have the kids paddling pool out or when we have a barbeque. Thanks again for your style inspiration, Pamcasso!!
