Things That Make Me Smile
Because I was desperately short of fabric, I did not have enough even to make some welt pockets and I felt that the addition of these would actually make the back look a little busy anyway. I hemmed the shorts using a 12cm rolled hem and then folded them back by 4cm before stay stitching them at the side seams.
I realise when I look at this photo now that the waist band looks puckered but actually this is a trick of the camera and the waistband does actually sit perfectly flat....or maybe it is my ironing skills, ironing being my least favourite chore and all!
These shorts are the perfect fit and I always feel when I wear shorts made in this pattern that it was actually designed just for me. I guess that is the measure of the perfect pattern.
I don't know whether you noticed but these shorts featured in my Making It Work post a couple of days ago. These shorts were in regular rotation during my holiday.
