I made a pair of shorts a few months back, I just needed to add in ties. I did that tonight as I wanted to wear them and they were nagging me to finish them already!
I used Butterick B5893 version A, I did think that I would have to make some adjustments as I have a big bottom but I thought I;d give a go (this is a toile).
I used cotton poplin instead of georgette or linen, I don’t think that would have made much difference.
Here are the results
I’ll still wear these as they look nice and they’re comfortable. They also give me that laid back look I like so much, very good for hot days.
I can either wear them high on my waist or on my hips, I like having options.
I’ll make these again and add a few inches in the front and back crotch pieces, this should help. I’ll also use plain black fabric to hide any mistakes, if any!
I was wondering how loose stretch shorts would look as I want to make exercise wear, plus we’re having a good Summer in England so I want more shorts (another excuse is they’re good for stash busting)
Until next time!
