Bloomers!

Bloomers!

I finished these shorts back in August – my Burda Challenge for July. I always add 2 inches in height just below the waist for pants. I think a lot of my extra height is carried between my ribs and hips, but having the shorts this high is just too much.

That said, I haven’t seen these pictures for a few months and they don’t look as bad as I remember…

except from this angle.

They are even kind of cute like this. I plan to shorten them a tad, and stitch down the pleats on the front. I really should lower that fake back pocket, while I’m at it. Since these are all fantasy alterations anyway, I’ll make a fake back pocket for the other side too.
