Description

don’t really own many shorts and most of the ones I do have are quite short and I don’t feel comfortable wearing them any more. Its incredibly hard to find nice shorts that are long without being too old fashion and dorky. So when I was looking to make some summery outfits to take to Hawaii I decided to give these BurdaStyle Pleated shorts a go.

There are a few reasons why I chose these shorts in particular. They were pleated at the front which I have found suits my body shape, they have a side zip so I didn’t have to be too picky learning to master the front fly and the pattern is actually for pants as well so I was able to make them a bit longer according to the pattern. I am so happy I chose this pattern! I loved the way it turned out and for the first time I actually like wearing shorts!! I was so excited to have some new shorts for Hawaii I ended up making about 5 pairs in little under 2 weeks.

    The shorts are really great! I love your fabric choices. I’ve reached the age where short shorts don’t really look right but these are the perfect length. These would also look great with a jacket in a winter fabric as an alternative to a skirt. I’m feeling inspired!
