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.
It’s a super simple pattern with only one welt pocket on the back right. There’s a side zip, but the star of the show is the cuffs! All two inches of them. Lots of playing around room in these.
I didn’t make a muslin, and I’ve noticed that she is going to need a little length added to the back of future trousers/shorts. The apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree!
Or maybe I should say the cherries don’t fall too far from the tree. Better luck next time!
