Shorts in Multiples

Yay!  Shorts that fit my high hips!

I recently found Vogue 7881 and liked the curved waistband – great for women like me who have hips.

I also like to sew the facings with fun quilting fabrics.  Nobody else knows, but it does make me smile when I put them on!

These fit pretty well right out of the envelope, although I did add ½” to the vertical length of the pattern to allow for tummy.

Also made these in whitish twill fabric.   I’m sure there is another name for the color besides whitish – you tell me!

You can visit my blog HERE to see the quilting fabric I used for the waistband lining for : )  You’ll also see the “muslin” I made from curtain fabric!

I highly recommend this pattern!  I’m sure there will be pants in the future as well.

Happy Creating everyone!
