Laura's teddy bears

Added Jan 29, 2012

Leeds, United Ki...






I drafted the pattern for these shorts from a pair of H&M shorts I have. The only difference is, that instead of a zipper I used snap fasteners. The whole project was rather easy, though these are the first pair of pants I’ve made! I’m still not sure if I’ll actually wear these a lot.. they’re teddy bears, after all. But we’ll see!

Material Notes

Cotton, 3 snap fasteners.




Spring, Summer
Garment Type

    I love these so much! Would absolutely wear them…how did you copy your original shorts? I really would like to do the same :-) x

      thank you:) i just placed them on a tracing paper and could pretty much draw them like that! just needed to fold them a bit to see where the seams went. it’s quite easy with basic shorts ‘cause you only need the back piece, waist piece and half of the front side. as you can see, i didn’t add pockets though the original shorts had them, but i might try and do that next time! did this help at all..? :) x
