Charlotte Hall, ...
I made these shorts using pattern #116 from Burda magazine 6/2010. I altered them pretty extensively to accommodate my ample bum and legs. I also omitted the bow, but opted for contrast pockets with a bird print.
I also made a top with the same bird fabric in the pockets of the shorts. The top was made from a self-drafted pattern.
If you are interested in more information and a poem about the project, please see this blog post.
