Kuala Lumpur, Ma...
My first time making shorts, drafted with the aid of Winifred Aldrich’s book with my own measurements. I’ve always had problems getting nice shorts that fit decently, and elastic shorts just made my bum look bigger than it already is. So I am pretty happy with this pair! Even though it took 2 muslin fittings to get right, I felt it was very well worth the extra time and effort (this being the first time I’ve done muslin fittings haha).
