Simplicity Sew Simple A1634

I don't like how these shorts turned out. I wanted them to be in a bright loud "ethnic" print and I wanted them to be flowy. I couldn't find both factors for the equation off hand, so I opted for the print instead of the flow. I made them in a cotton batik that is light-med weight.

They don't hang the way I want them to and I don't like the way they wrinkle. I also probably should have made the legs a little wider and lengthened the crotch for the look I was going for.


I do think this pattern has potential. I like the tie, the pockets and even the pleats. If I find some challis in a print that speaks to me, I may sew these up again with a few tweaks.

If high school me knew I was sewing up shorts with a mid rise, pleats and elastic waist, she would be mortified. I would tell her to treat herself better by not wearing so many polyester shirts.
