Summer Caye Bermudas



Summer is in the air… The kids are getting antsy, end of the year programs/performances fill our days, and I’m hanging in there just waiting for those lazy summer days.


 As the weather warms up, off come the jeans and in come the shorts- hallelujah!


For the Summer Sewing- The Long and Short of it tour, I sewed up some bermuda length Summer Caye’s (affl. link) by Love Notions.  I love my pant versions and knew these would make the perfect summer short for me.



For my version, I cut them at the knee line in the pattern and did a full elastic waistband with a faux drawstring.  If I’m wearing shorts, I’m most likely chasing kids at the park or roasting in the sun at a soccer game so comfort is key.  I also used the slimmer wide leg cut line for the back piece and just rolled my hem up instead of using the cuff piece (the cuff pattern piece is made for the palazzo width).



I used Art Gallery denim and used the reverse for contrast on the pockets, hem, and waistband.  They are so soft and lightweight!


Such a quick, easy pattern and I’m thinking I need a knit pair real soon too!

  1. Those look great! I love the fact that you reversed the fabric to get a lighter color but still an exact match for drape and texture. Now I’m thinking I need this pattern too!


  2. Those look great! I have loved all the Summer Cayes you have made so far. Did you cut them on the Palazzo line? I’m assuming though because you cuffed them, but I love the width on these so just checking in case I get around to making myself a pair.


    1. Thanks Kristin! I was just thinking I need to edit my post to mention I cut these with the trimmer wide leg option and just rolled the hem instead of using the cuff. I like this width if the fabric isn’t super drapey.


  3. Exactly what I needed to see and read! I was wondering what the shorts would look like using the narrower back width. I’ll definitely be making a similar pair soon! Love the contrasting denim details.


  4. Love how you did the waistband. I have a pair of wide leg Cayes cut in a lightweight denim and I think I’m going to steal your waistband treatment 🙂
