Description

I love this pattern! It fits my body shape very well (I am more of a pear, and we all know what that means). It is from December 2011 BurdaStyle – shown in leather in that issue. I made a size 42 which fits me perfectly – no adjustments needed! I made them slightly shorter for this summer, and added a cream bias tape for the bottom hem.

It has a slight vintage look to them – the pattern looks like a 60s one I have. I made mine in a light denim. I will be making another one – I have a tropical pattern in mind.

    Great shorts! Isn’t this pattern great? It hardly needs any alterations except for the length. I really look forward seeing your tropical version…

      Did you find they were too long too? I need a second pair now! I am living in those, people may think I only have one pair of shorts!
