Hi i am really keen to make a pair of high-waisted shorts and i’ve bought a cute fabric which i’m hoping will fit but i haven’t decided on a pattern. It’s hard as there aren’t any specifically made how i want. I want them fitted – atleast around the waist. Has anyone found a great pattern i haven’t seen yet? Otherwise i have a few ideas. Basically i thought i’d post this to see other peoples opinions which could help shape my project :)
These shorts have been on my mind since joining BurdaStyle.. but they’re not exactly high waisted. I have always been confused because some peoples versions are hipsters and some peoples come to below their navel. I would probably prefer to make these shorts but is making them high waisted as easy as extending the waist or extend it at the ‘lengthen lines’ ??
NattyJane did some fantastic shorts but she did redesign them quite a bit.
Help on changing these?
These wide leg pants aren’t exactly what i want but i have seen Kasia26 make some great shorts out of them. They go up quite high which i’m not sure i want but its definitely a possibility. It might be an easier option.
It’s hard as noone has made these yet but that also makes it exciting!
These shorts look fantastic from that back view (to me!) but i don’t want a skort so i would be removing the front panel and hoping the shorts still look nice. I have no idea what they will look like. It looks like the shorts might flare out quite a bit but i guess i could fix that once they’re made. I just don’t know if they will be flattering from the side either.. i don’t have stick thin legs so i do care about these things.
ITS SUCH A HARD DECISION! i change my mind every minute. what do you think? =)
