Shorts and tees are my go-to gear for getaways to hot climates so these new camo Maritime shorts were my pick for this month's Minerva Crafts Blogger Network project.

The Grainline Maritime Shorts Sewing Pattern works for me and this blue camo Fabric print has just the right mix of colours that I can pair with other clothes that I've made. You'll see how soon.

I've used pale pink poplin for the pocket lining because I wanted to have something girlie about them.

I felt the back pockets needed to clash as much as the fabric print does so you can see the work on these pockets. 

No pattern matching was required.

I know these shorts work well because the grey shorts from my Minerva Crafts Summer travel set get worn a lot.

More details about these shorts are in a previous blog post here.

I have included a sway back adjustment and short centre front seam adjustment to the pattern so a size 6 with these adjustments works every time.

My convertible backpack bag using Sacotin patterns from last year's project has been a workhorse travel piece too.

The Art Gallery Denim Fabrics wash so well as does this camo fabric. 

Throw in the zip front jacket I made in a previous Minerva Crafts project and a couple of tops and I'm ready to hit the road for another travel adventure.

Now to plan my next travel adventure, once I earn enough leave.

Thanks again Minerva Crafts.
