I love high-waisted clothing, its just so cute!
I had seen some other members with these shorts and they were perfect for what I was after. I just extended the shorts by 1 inch at the lengthen lines. I also omitted the belt, shortened them by 7 inches (they were so long! down to my kneecap.) and didn’t turn them up.
I actually didn’t think the instructions were as bad as some said, you just need to get your head around them. It’s winter here, but I believe in finishing projects otherwise they’ll never come back out of the pile!
My first pair of shorts – really quite easy and interesting to make! Love them :)
I chose cherry material for fun, but next time I think ill do some more ‘serious’ shorts.
