Description

I made my first pair of shorts! I used the first ever pattern from Katy and Laney (www.katyandlaney.com) and an IKEA upholstery fabric. I totally love them – I kept the pleats stitched down, and used the welt pockets. Another bonus: they go up to a 20 / 40 inch waist! Hurray!

    SO CUTE! I am so excited to try this pattern out too, love how the pleats worked with the stripes! Great job! I’ve never made shorts either, was this a good first shot at it?

    They look awesome on you. Good to see some indie designers taking into account the more curvaceous ladies out there when making patterns.

      Yeah! Originally they didn’t go up this large, but I’m friends with Katy and when the biggest muslin didn’t fit me, she continued grading up – that’s what friends are for :D

    These are gorgeous and you look smashing wearing them. The fabrics lovely and they’re a great shape. Well done on your first pair. I have a feeling these won’t be you Last z

      Thank you! The insides don’t look quite as good, but no-one sees them so it’s my secret ;)

      It’s the first time I’ve made something with IKEA fabric, but it came out well!
