DD1 wanted more shorts, and chose this lovely cuffed pair from Burda’s June issue to make from this spectacular stretch cotton (Burda 06/2013 #111A). The fabric is so vibrant that I really wanted her to choose a skirt or a dress to showcase it better, but she’s “not that into skirts and dresses, really, mom”. OK. So shorts it is. Although I did manage to cut a skirt, too, that’s currently resting in my magic sewing closet. But back to these shorts.
