Yellow High Waist Shorts
Again I used McCalls 6403. For this pair, I did the same alterations as my Floral Denim Shorts and more. I used the size 12 waist but used 14 for the rest of the pattern because I thought it would fix the problem with the hips. The fit is still not right but I will wear them. I am going to make another pair and just use size 12 and add length on the lines given. Maybe that will work.
I used 100% cotton twill from the Lisette Fabric Collection. It is nice and soft and very easy to work with. The fabric is a tiny bit see through. Also, after wearing them, they got incredibly wrinkly. I will use Lisette fabrics again and just add a lining.
This is part of my 13 by 13. Goal 3: make a pair of shorts.
