Ottobre 03-2009-23

Made a pair of shorts for J - but I made it with an adjustable waist and in denim - does not look as good as it should and waist not worked well.  As you can see the waistband adjustable elastic twists and looks awful, the front flat section is too large making the rest of the shorts look like a bussle! Rather homemade looking -not impressed. Going to try an old Burda shorts pattern instead. Will trace it off tonight.

I wanted the adjustable waist so that the other boys could wear them when they are older. Also prefer intergrated pockets rather than the patch pockets. Not worth trying this pattern again (though the main reasons I don't like it are because of my deviations from the instructions - should probably try it again with better fabric and the right type of waistband!!)

Have also traced off another Burda T-shirt pattern for me. Must stop the Knit tops kick and start making some woven tops and get on with some more skirts and dresses!!
