so i made shorts!
i saw this fabric and i just knew i have to make shorts out of it
(even though i haven’t been wearing shorts since i’ve been in elementary school)
fabric was in remnants bin of my local fabric shop
just a tiny remnant about 0,5m big
dunno how i managed to squeeze this shorts out of it
(i’ve spend over an hour trying to fit my paper pattern pieces on fabric
like i was solving a puzzle)
only change i made
was to sew in seam zipper
instead of front fly one
if i make this pattern again (and i believe i’ll do that)
i would change waist into a more shaped one
instead of long interfaced rectangle
i’m a curvy gal, and i need more shaping than original waist has
(i fixed problem with taking in small wedges of original waistband)
see more pics on my blog mokosha
ps sorry for the wrinkles
i’ve been practically living in this shorts
for day and a half before taking these pics
cotton fabric, with a bit of stretch to it
scraps of black cotton fabric, for inside of the pockets
