Description

Blossom Shorts – Burdastyle 03/2012 #114A

I traced this pattern a few years ago, and I’ve only just stitched it up, but it didn’t take too long to sew. I used a small remnant of vintage floral cotton, as well as edged it with remnants of blue lace found at the thrift store. I like the wrap around ties, which only just reach going around my back haha. I stitched the split side seams down an extra 5 cm longer, as it can show too much when you move your legs lol. They’re comfy with the elastic waistband. Location: Muri Beach

Material Notes

woven ’70s floral cotton fabric, thin blue lace for edging, medium width elastic
