There has been no structure or order whatsoever in what I’ve been making lately. Knowing full well I have a drawer full of almost-finished garments I go ahead and start a new project from scratch! It’s just that I really needed some black shorts in my wardrobe. Stat.
A waistband and zip away from being finished, these are coming along nicely. That black trim inset I was experimenting with became a hem detail and I think it looks so cute.
The wrong side reveals a huge amount of bulk. It doesn’t really show since it’s a tailored style, but I’m sure that scalloped edge will be imprinted on my thighs whenever I sit down.
The waistband was an afterthought. I remembered the pattern to be more high waisted but in fact it needs some additional height. I’m trying out a curved waistband which I rarely do for no reason other than habit.
