I actually made this shorts like a year and a half ago, but I haven’t got around to take any pictures of them until now. As usual :)
I really loved Pettitemess’s Petite Shorts , so I knew I had to try and make one for myself! She have so many cool ideas when it comes to making shorts, the truth is I want to copy all of her projects :)
For this one I used one of the Burda’s shorts patterns as a base, and then I did some modifications. Basically – I omitted the front pockets, moved the front fly zipper at a side and split each of the front pieces in two to make the scalloped edge. It wasn’t complicated and the whole process went quite smoothly, I was kinda pleasantly surprised :)
I really love how they fit! Quite comfy and easy to wear. I’m not really a pants person, so it’s nice to have some other cute option when you want to take a break from skirts.
We have a crazy nice and warm weather here, so it was an ideal day to take a walk and do a little photo shoot. My talented and beautiful friend Tea was kind enough to snap these pictures for me. We had lots of fun walking around, trying to avoid crowd that was lured out by the sun :)
Since the whole project was a spur of the moment thing, I went for material I already had in my stash. The fabric is some sort of wool mixture and I cannot really remember how it ended up in my possession (since is not really a color I usually go for), but I like it. Wish I had an invisible zipper instead of this regular one, but oh my. The gold metallic buttons I really really love – I’ve found them in a box full of all sort of trinkets that previous owners left in our apartment! I only had 11 of them, so that’s why one of the back welt pockets is without a button :)
Trousers, blazers, and blouses in cool neutrals have model-off-duty style.
