Norwich, United ...
Made a pair of shorts for the hot weather! (Ironically the sun went in the minute i finished them)
They are made from some mystery fabric that i’ve used before, like a thick jersey beginning with a b or p, and a three inch wide elastic waistband, I accidentally but the waist band on the wrong way and the seam is at the front so disguised it with some buttons. Pretty comfy, modified the Jalie Jeans pattern but widening them to accommodate elastic instead of a zip..put like a turn up type thing for the hem
Was great to make my own shorts as all in the shops here seem to be like hot pants and i wanted them a bit longer to cover tops of thighs.
