my first ever shorts ..............

Great Yarmouth, ...






I’ve always shyed away from making pants because I thought it’d be really difficult but last week I finally gave it a try and was totally amazed how easy it was. Used some leftover fleece (no idea why I had so much of this stuff) which is quite stretchy so didn’t need a zipper, which made it even easier.
Next stop are some real pants !!

    I was thinking about making some tartan shorts. But like you, I have held back, thinking they are difficult. Thank you for the inspiration. I love the styling of shorts with tights and boots…. great look! :-)

      Meant to ask what pattern did you use… was it a Burda one?

      Thanks for the compliment !

      Don’t hold back anymore, it really is very easy, especially for an accomplished seamstress like yourself !

      I used a Burda pattern, 112/12/2011

      Can’t wait to see your version !!

      Oh thank you Chula…. I know the ones. Leather in the mag. Yours are so much better. Thank you too for the returned compliment! Not sure about ‘accomplished’!!! More of a ‘safey’!! Tartan shorts are now on the list :-)
