I haven't made a Burda item for a loooong time. I liked these shorts though and I needed some running shorts. I used a blue Supplex fabric from my local fabric boutique. The trim fabric is a stretch poplin fabric. I made this shirt out of it and have some left over. It makes fun bias tape.
I didn't realize until this was mostly done but the drawstrings are sewn into the front sides and do NOT go all the way around the waist.
I don't know what is with my pictures. Not one of them included my whole head. I think it may be that I'm using a camera and taping it to the tripod. Ghetto, I know. But, it mostly works and I don't know where the little piece is that screws on to the camera bottom. These babies are short.* This is a Jalie top. See more about it here.
Hmmmm, other details . . . The pattern calls for 1.5" elastic. I bought .75" elastic in bulk last year so I just used the zigzag stitch and linked them together. I used my industrial snap press to put in the grommets. I love that thing.
I'm planning on making that knit June Burda with the bust gathers next. I really liked that top.
*Yes, I realize there are the haters out there that will say something like, "You are too old to be wearing those!" or "Wow, there she goes again! Too short and there she is parading around like that!" Really? You need to rain hate down on other people? I guess if it makes you feel better about yourself, then have at it. :)
