Mid-rise shorts have waistband, bias binding trim on hem and sides, front pockets, back darts, and button closures on both legs.
The bottom three buttons on both legs are non functioning. 5/8 in (1.6 cm) seam allowances included
I call these the "Movies in the Park" shorts because they'd be great to lounge around in on a warm summer night having a picnic in the park watching a free movie.
What is nice about these shorts is that you can easily adjust the fit at the sides by moving the overlapping leg pieces and stitching down your buttons in the place that feels most comfortable (an idea I got after losing weight and I was annoyed by the idea of having to do major alterations).
I'm a crafter and creator at heart and recently sewing has really won me over. I love the challenge of making patterns and sharing some of my skills with other stitchers. My goal this year is to create a more wearable and useful wardrobe that is still fun and stylish.
I live in Austin, TX with my boyfriend and my neurotic cat, Peanut.
