McCall's 4060 Ladies Shorts
I used this pattern quite a bit for Christmas this year. I couldn't post this pair until after Christmas since they were for my DD and she reads my blog. This is a really bright orange cotton fabric I found at Joann's and loved it. I had the white dot fabric left over from another project as well as the ribbon. I thought they all went quite well together.
As usual, I shortened the length considerably then added the ruffle to the legs. If I recall correctly, I shortened by 4". I also shortened the waist, since she likes to wear them lower on the hips. These really sit high up on the waist. I shortened by 3" at first then took off another 2.5" to add the top band. Again, I'm going by memory, and that is dangerous. :)
I hope your Christmas and New Year's holidays were fantastic!
Thanks for stopping by.
