I just love leather, and been wanting leather shorts for a while. However, I haven’t sewed unaccompanied for quite a while, so I did a test run in pleather (more economical friendly on my student shoe-string budget). Following BurdaStyle 12/2011 pattern nr. 112 in size 38, this is what I came up with. Incredibly easy and fitted perfectly (no professional help needed, yay!), definitely my new favorite pair of shorts!
Now I just need to recreate that trés chic red headband from the BurdaStyle photo, and I’m all set! ;-)
