New shorts in my wardrobe! This time I tried a pattern #123 from Burda 06/2014.. I liked the challenge of making this cute button closure (and trying something new).. Also on photos it looked like it is high-waisted, so it was a reason more to give it a try.. I used stretch denim with print for shorts.. It was easy and fun to sew.. The fit is good, and I’ll probably make another version with scallops around the buttons..

The top is also made by me.. Last year I had an experiment using one Burda top pattern #107, 09/2008 .. I wanted to see how many different garments I can make with that basic pattern.. I had ideas only for three (Black Balloon top and Atlantis To Interzone dress), but maybe in future I’ll figure out something new.. The back with buttons on my top was inspired by Deer&Doe’s Datura top .. I redrafted Burda’s top pattern to have the back I wanted, and to that I added high-low hemline.. Fabric I used is rayon, remnant bin find, less than 1m of length..

    I hate shorts but those look great. It is a shame you din’t choose those pictures in front of the murals as your cover-project image!.. they are awesome..trust your aesthetic instincts next time, babe! :)

      I wasn’t sure if I liked the photos in front of the mural.. something was not just right.. that’s why I changed order of pictures.. there’s more of these cute ghosts murals, and more projects to come :)
      thanks for the critique :)

      thank you :) I don’t know what I would do without italtes stores in Belgrade.. they have periods when prices are very low, and that’s when we all shop there frequently.. both fabrics were from remnant bin and they cost me about 3 euros :) nowadays, prices are high for their fabrics and it will be like that for next couple of months :(
