I’m really happy that the use of the Fitting for Every Figure book helped me work out the kinks, and these fit perfectly.
I’m less happy to report that the Scout tee I hoped to share together with them has been a nightmare (woe are my wobbly hems).
Check this out! No baggy seats here:
And here are the innards:
- Size 6 short narrowed to 4 at the waist, waist darts, size 4 waistband. Flat seat adjustment. 3/4″ added length.
- Curved hem variation except instead of binding the hem I turned it under
- Added belt loops(!) using this Colette tutorial
Overall, I’m pretty happy with them. They’ll be great for casual city wear as well as hiking and biking. For the next version – remind me to refer back to this next May when I need to make shorts again – I’d like to see if I can lower the rise a bit. Also, I want to reduce the length to somewhere in between these and the Cherry Bomb version. Finally, I want to do the next ones in a stretch twill print, which I have all Winter to find!
Are you still in Summer mode, or have you gone head first into preparations for Fall? My friend Alex started this lovely Fall fashion pin board, and I’m in love and all, but I’m holding onto the last rays of Summer sun like my life depends on it…
