This Modern Love

♫ ♪ This Modern Love

When I saw the pattern for these shorts in Burda Easy S/S 2012 I knew I had to get my hands on it.. That was the easiest part, finding the right fabric took me a whole year.. Then one day I stumbled upon this navy cotton fabric with a floral print, only about 50-60cm long, which was perfect for this project..

While sewing the shorts I didn’t make any changes, just followed the main idea.. It was easy to make, including scallops :) Since I mainly make dresses, sewing shorts was a nice change..

      thanks :) you can make these with any other pattern for shorts.. just add scallop edge ;)
      I have a German issue of the magazine, and I know only a few words to recognize.. if you have sewing experience, it’s easy to figure out how to sew it all together.. plus, because it’s Burda Easy, every pattern has illustrated instructions :) you can’t make a mistake :)

      If you are willing to purchase the English issue on Ebay, you are set!

      thank you :) I recommend this pattern, but if you don’t have it, you can always use some other simple shorts pattern and just add scalloped edge..
