First I made the short jacket to wear with my high waisted dresses. Then I decided to make a pair of shorts instead of a skirt with what was left of the fabric. Good decision as so far these shorts have been worn many times, so versatile is the colour.

For both pieces I used patterns from old Burda Style issues. The pair of shorts pattern is #122B from July 1996, and the jacket, #121 from August 2001.
