I absolutely LOVE this pattern. Easy Peasy! The shorts would have only taken a couple of hours to do except that I kept being distracted all day doing this, that and the other thing. I highly recommend this pattern to anyone wanting to make a quickie pair of shorts or capris. Last year, I made a pair of capris from this pattern and they are my favourite summer go to. They can be dressy or casual. The shorts are the same story. Although, I chose to be whimsical with the Hello Kitty fabric accents.
Here I am in my new shorts. They fit well, and I see that I still have a ways to go to lose some weight. BLEAH. I am making progress though. I will make another pair with no Hello Kitty silliness. That way they can be worn on a more formal basis.
Most shorts are quite uncomfortable for me, and I just want to emphasize that they fit really nicely and feel good wearing. They don’t ride up between the legs and the back of the shorts cover my butt properly.
Here are some details of the Hello Kitty embellishments and a closer true colour of my shorts.
I can’t wait to make another pair!
