Perfect Pattern Parcel #3 Prefontaine Shorts

Pattern Parcel #3

I am here today sharing and supporting a cause that is very close to my heart for two reasons! First off, if you follow me or Instagram or my blog then you probably know that I rarely sew anything but Indie patterns. For those of you who actually read my posts (instead of just looking at the pictures) then you’ve probably heard me mention that I am a speech language pathologist at an elementary school. Well, perfect pattern parcel is all about supporting independent pattern designers AND supporting classrooms. Pattern Parcel donates all profits after expenses from Parcel sales to Donors Choose. Working for a Title One school (Title 1 is a federal program that provides funds to schools and school districts serving high numbers of economically disadvantaged children), I know all about Donors Choose and how important it is! The funds raised from each Pattern Parcel sale will go to help K-12 students in minimizing educational inequality and encourage a community where children have the tools and experiences necessary for an excellent education. From pencils for poetry to microscopes for mitochondria, your support will help address educational inequality and grow generations to come. Pattern Parcel has raised almost $4,500 towards eliminating educational inequality!

The 3rd Pattern Parcel includes some great patterns that are perfect for summer. Included in this parcel are the following patterns: Poppy Tunic by Make it Perfect, Water Bottle Tote by Radiant Home Studio, Jorna Tank Dress by Jenna Brand, Staple Dress by April Rhodes, and Bombshell Swimsuit by Closet Case Files. Just name your price and you can become and owner of these awesome patterns. But wait….there’s more…if you name a price of $28 or more then you get this….

Pattern Parcel #3

….which is the awesomeness that I’m about to show you!

Awesome right? The prefontaine shorts, by Made with Moxie, feature retro contrast trim, which I chose to do with a pop of color. You can choose between the standard elastic waistband casing or an exposed sport waistband, which I chose and LOVE! The front pockets are perfect for your essentials, especially if you are like me and rarely carry a purse. I also got a little crazy and did my pockets out of stripes, fun! You can also choose between back patch pockets or welt pockets. I chose the modest inseam length of 5 inches, but you could go a little “risque” and choose the 1.5 inch inseam length. The fabric options for these shorts are endless. I chose a quilting cotton, but you could also use knit, terry cloth, twill, or velour. I love my prefontaine shorts and wear them quite often. I really think you will love them just a much as me!

So how can you help? Hurry up and name your price for Pattern Parcel #3 (hopefully $28 or more so you can make these shorts). The sale ends June 13th! I’ll see you back her on June 8th to share another one of my makes from the parcel!
