I made these using the Burdastyle Ruby Pattern. The instructions were a nightmare – I ended up getting the waistband completely wrong and inserted it like a facing! They are more hipster shorts than the high waisted shorts I was after but still wearable I think!

I bought a pair of cropped trousers for £1 and then took them apart. Grey/Blue and white striped polyester. The buttons are vintage and from eBay, contrasting peach silk from some silk remnants I bought off eBay as well.
