Sorell trousers variation: a pair of short

by Pauline Alice
When designing the Sorell trousers, I thought they would make a great pair of shorts as well. This is such an easy variation to make: just cut the legs  above the knee ast desired length.


Sorell-trousers-variation-pair-short-sewing-pattern-1I like my shorts short so I cut mine about 8 cm below the crotch seam, including the 4 cm hem. I also added about 2 cm to the side seam at the hem to get them a little bit wider around the thighs.

Me encantan!!!. Ufffffffffffffff, me temo que no me van a dar las vacaciones para tanto como quiero hacer. Eso sí, me temo que cuando una que yo me sé vea esa modificación va a pedir que pasen al primer puesto.
De momento voy a ir preparando el pedido ;).
