My second creation. I think it turned out fantastic considering it’s my second time sewing. I had so much fun making it, even though it took me 13 hours from I downloaded the pattern until it was done.
Only thing that really sucks is that I had very limited fabric (that’s why it ended up as a pair of shorts instead of pants.) Because of this I could not match the checks on the different panels.
I did not understand the instructions provided with the pattern, so I kind of just did what I felt was right.. And as I did not have any zipper available I made the fly with buttons instead.
I will definitely make more shorts in the coming weeks! Went to the fabric market today and bought 60-70 yards of fabrics. So I’m ready for my 3rd creation. Planning on a surfer shorts, but need elastic band and mesh lining before I can start.
The sizes are way off on this pattern. I measured myself and selected the size based on the instructions in the pattern and I should have gone with 2 sizes smaller. I kind of cheated on the pictures and gathered the excess fabric on the side that’s not visible to the camera. =)
Glad to hear any comments/tips to improve it. =)
The pictures don’t show the workmanship so well though.. sorry for that..
How do I make Burda style not cropping my pictures? I’ve adjusted them to be 400px wide but still the pictures are cropped.. Anyone knows?
