Made using a modified Burda 7723; lengthening and flaring the legs, adding a zip placket, and redrafting the front piece to remove the double pleats that are in the pattern. I did this last because the embroidered fabric is very thick and bulky with a lot of yarn in those flowers, and was too bulky to have much folding etc. Also shaped the waistband to accommodate a sway-back.
I’ve reviewed this great shorts pattern on my blog here
The top is made using Butterick 4985, out of baby blue embroidered cotton, and with lace pockets and a lace necktie, that is usually hanging at the front but was blown to the back in these pictures…
