When recently looking through my 2013 Burda stack, I came across this schematic of some shorts. They looked like nothing special from the photo, but on the line drawing you can actually see all the great details.
These are from Burda 3/2013 #126 shorts. Can I just say LOVE THEM!?!
This was my muslin, which is wearable. Dontcha just love that when it happens? The fabric is some Kona solid quilting cotton.
As I’ve mentioned before, I am a fan of curved waistbands as I have high hips and they seem to help greatly with the fit.
So I made a pair out of the white stretch twill I’d been saving in my stash.
White goes with everything summery!
Here you can see how the side seam has been moved to the back (and the front also as you can see in the green shorts if you look closely).
Well, that’s not the end of the story. I’d had this nifty printed canvas fabric in my stash that I bought at JoAnn’s last summer. It was the end of the bolt and I had limited yardage.
I decided to extend the length of the shorts and make above-the-ankle pants! I didn’t have enough for full length pants and I’m glad; they are way too casual for full length pants. And the beauty of above-the-ankle pants in the summer is you can wear heels or flats and don’t have to worry with the length of the hem!
These are so fun to wear!
Happy Creating everyone!
