I finished these shorts that are from a book that my friend Lynda gave me: Debbie Bliss Essential Baby. It was the first time that I’ve worked with an English pattern, up until know I’ve been relying on my German patterns.
I’m really pleased with them, the colours have worked out very well. A friend has told me that these are Australian colours, which is kind of ironic, I think.
The shorts require you to sew in an elastic band at the top, which makes them even more useful. I’ve also learned a new way of sewing them together, which is less visible. I think it’s worked out very well.
I love the leg ending, it gives the little shorts that extra flourish.
