Nancy, these are great looking shorts !! Thanks for the tip on using the stretch lace to rectify the cutting boo boo. I have done that a few times myself. Apart from using a 40 waist, tapering to a 44 hip, did you have to make any other alterations eg, sway back and crotch length?

*Great* looking shorts!

I did not make any other alterations. The crotch curve and back were fine. I think I may have cut the back a 42 and the front a 44 with the waist a 40, but I had to let out all the seams, so the back probably ended up being a 44 after all. The shorts sit below the waist, so I didn't need to make any sway back alteration there. I really like the way BWOF pants fit. Oh, the only seam I did not let out was the front since I had already installed the fly zip

Good to see you've mastered the piped pockets. They're great and so are the shorts. I still have to practise the piped pockets :-(

really nice shorts. the pocket looks great! I'm dying to know, do you like the KK method? Better or not than the traditional? You are so inspiring.
6/25/07 10:29 AM
Nancywin said...
I relaly do like the KK method. It is easy once you get the hang of it. I've never done double welt pockets by the traditional method, though. It's on my list to try.

I must have missed your review on the city shorts...the fit and detail is awesome you did the welt pockets perfectly.

Nancy, they came out great in the white. Nice touch on the pockets using the fleshtone lining. I enjoyed the narrative in your Picassaweb-log
