These are the first shorts I’ve ever made and I am having one hell of a time following Burda Mag’s lame ass instructions.
This fabric has a TON of stretch, otherwise I would have never been able to get into these. As it is, the back waistband needs about three inches taken in and I have decided to eliminate the front zip closure in favor of a back zip.
I have this same fit issue when I make skirts but I’m not sure what to do with these shorts. I would normally make darts on either side of the ones already included in the pattern, but it makes it sit weird on my (rather prominent) backside when I pin it in that way.
And the front is hitting high on my belly and the back is just barely covering my ass. This also happens when I make skirts.
They look OK from the front…and with the waist covered. But I would like to wear them with something other than this baggy ass tank top.
What to do??
