It didn't matter what I did, I realise now why pants and shorts have a seam down the front - otherwise they just don't sit right. But sew and learn right? The experience prompted me to buy the Oliver&s pattern from last post, which can only be a good thing!
So here they are.
They are still cute - but I think that the pockets make them. And they weren't part of the pattern, just something I thought would make them look better, and make me feel a bit better about them.
And an action shot!
By September / October when the weather starts to get warmer they should fit perfectly. So a big lesson learnt this week - will stick to patterns and tutorials that make sense!
