Cycling Shorts – Burdastyle 06/2013 #126

I didn’t of course use the recommended 4-way stretch lycra type fabrics for these shorts, instead opting to try an off-cut I got randomly from the sewing store bargain bin once, its possibly stretch garbadine. So it has no vertical stretch, but does have excellent medium crosswise stretch with good recovery. Hence the inner leg seams may appear to pull up, the back waistband pulls down slightly when bending, and optimal movement activities such as cycling may be somewhat restricted lol, however they’re totes comfortable and tough wearing. The stripes I handmade out of a silky jersey remnant, from my vintage stash box, formed into tubes. Photos taken at the gym of an apartment I was minding, sticking my butt out and breathing in for a slimline effect, as I don’t actually gym lolz! Location: St Marys Bay
