Hannah's high-waisted Ruby's

Added Jun 12, 2010

Newcastle, Austr...






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 :)

Material Notes

I chose cherry material for fun, but next time I think ill do some more ‘serious’ shorts.

    Wow, they fit perfectly! Also a fun place for taking pictures : ) But where are the children?! The sun is shining and it’s a playground…

      Haha well it is actually winter here but children did come near the end of our picture taking. I ran away after that.. getting photos taken is embarrasing!
      Also, thanks! These are the most favourite thing i’ve made :)
