Description

I wanted a pair of white shorts for some time but I didn’t found a pattern I liked…that until B 07/2013 hit the stores. Love at first sight. I only made them a little longer with about 5 cm so I could wear them at work also.
All in all, really fun pattern but I would have changed the fly facing because this version was a pain to sew.

    They look great and the fit is perfect! Did you have to modify them or did they fit right away?

      thanks. i did had some issues with the fit. i took a little at the back seam, and althou’ i did took it in about 1-2 cm, when i put the waist band it was still to loose but a belt fixed it. i guess that it was because my fabric has a little stretch to it. i hope you undestand what i mean :D

    These look fabulous on you and your photos show them of perfectly. I wonder would they look as good even longer? I don’t want them down to my knee lol but just a bout four inches longer? x
