Burda 6897

Standard

IMG_3521These are Burda Style 6897, a pattern for dressier shorts.  I elected to make up the walking short length.  There is also a shorter length, though not short-shorts.6897

These are the second muslin.  I tape measured the tissue, then cut what I thought was the appropriate size and made a muslin.  Those turned out a bit wonky.  This second attempt is much better.  A 1/4 inch here, an 1/8 inch there, these subtle tweaks make all the difference.  There’s still one or two more to incorporate, but overall most wearable.

Hmmm.  Shorts.  As I look out the window right now it is grey, windy, chilly and raining sporadically.  The mountains have snow.  The little remote weather station says it’s a balmy 44 degrees outside.  It doesn’t tell the wind chill.

What ever possessed me to make shorts?  Well, these were started several months ago, when the weather was more akin to summer than winter.  The windows were open.  The sunscreen was out.  Shorts were in (ahem) short supply.
