This is getting embarrassing. I have made yet another pair of shorts. From the same pattern. Not a current or trendy pattern mind you. Just an old Burda magazine one. In life, when I find something I like, I stick with it and sewing is not much different.
The fabric is a wool plaid which I picked up at The Fabric Store last Wednesday. Sewn up yesterday in time to wear back to work.
I tend not to go for plaid since it can be a nightmare to match up. I cut the pattern peices individually so that I could best match up the lines. Instead of consulting my sewing reference I just dove in and thought I would cut the waistband on the bias grain.
Once again I finished the facing with voile cut on the bias. I did mean to change the bobbin thread to white to blend with the fabric, but as you can see I forgot too.
My next project is not going to be shorts, but I am not finished with this pattern forever. I really want to make a yellow pair but I need to find the right fabric first.
