these are shorts i made last night to wear to school :) my school colors are navy and white. i first got inspired by gossip girl to create new and more interesting garments to wear to school. and for the design i gathered inspiration from ‘gracie by alice mccall’
i really like how they have turned out. i also absolutely LOVE the inside, because of how i have bias binded all the edges. if i could i would wear them inside out haha. i love bias binding. :) i modified the tonia pattern to create this. i think ill add in welt pockets later :]

Material Notes

satin bias binding, poly/cotton bias binding, navy poly cotton, invisible zip





pattern from burda

me for alterations

    well you could start off by binding all the raw edges but i knew that i didnt have enough bias binding so i just binded them after i had sewn the seam, this made the bias binding not so perfect but i guess no one will see the insides =D

    I have to ask.. What number was your Burda pattern? I really like the length and cut of those shorts.
