Thanks for the comments on my shorts. I forgot to say a few things about the pattern. The pattern is available for download on the BurdaStyle website for $5.40. Is it worth it? Well, I didn’t mention that I did not sew this pattern ‘out of the envelope’. I made my big fat adjustment for full seat and full inner thigh and scooped 1/2 inch out of the crotch. I didn’t muslin them without the adjustments so I don’t know how they would have fit otherwise. But, they are a great pattern for me and will soon be transferred to sturdier paper so they may live on in infamy.
I haven’t forgotten about my officiant dress. Currently, it’s pinned to my dressform until I start the muslin in August. The design of the fabric places dark and light in different places and I’m pondering how to get the best placement for myself. I did buy the pattern at the last Vogue sale. But, it starts at a 16. I generally place into a 14 with the Big 4 (but make a 12 on top grading to the 16 on the bottom). So, I need to exchange / get the right size. I’m not grading. On sale the pattern is $3.99 and worth it to me 🙂
Finally, thank you for the very nice comments on my first two shorts (two more to go!). I would be remiss in not assigning the compliments on my legs to my mother.
She and my dad met while they were both nurses in NYC back in the early 70s. She always says it was her legs which got my dad to ask her out. I think it worked, because next month is their 39th anniversary.
I hope you all have a great weekend. I’m going to the drive in with friends this weekend and hitting up ARTscape here in Baltimore.
See you next week!
