I really got my skates on this time: the July edition of Burdastyle was in my letterbox on Tuesday, I had already decided from the online preview that I wanted to make shorts # 105 from some light red denim in my now well equipped stash – and away I went.
Summer has been long and recalcitrant in arriving this year, but the weather forecast predicted good weather from today until the weekend. I knew I could not risk missing the German version of summer 2013, so I knuckled down and knocked out the shorts and could wear them for the first time today.
There is nothing really special about them, they are just a pair of little shorts, but I really like them. I like the rather wide cut – for a long time I did not like to wear short shorts because I did not think they were very flattering. These ones, because they don’t cut into the thigh, are much better I think (at least I hope so…)
I have worn these all day, so they are a bit crumpled, but I regard this is my boho slash vintage slash outdoor look.
Here is me trying to hold in my stomach 😉
And a lot more creases… One day I will get the hang of this ironing-before-taking-pictures thing, I promise.
All in all, although there is nothing unusual or particularly exciting about these shorts (in fact, DD put on some almost identical RTW shorts this morning), I am sure I will make these again. They are an easy make and just so practical for a relaxed summer day when I can’t spend all day lazing around in a pretty dress.
How about you – has summer arrived where you are? Or are you just in the midth of winter, glaring furiously at summer clothing?
