No pattern for the jersey dress, just made it up. It was really easy- basically one huge rectangle for the skirt sewn into a tube, and two long skinny rectangles for the boob parts, i gathered the skirt tube with elastic until it fit and then sewed on the strap/boob parts. Really easy.

Here's a random shot of me wearing the shorts that one of my friends took as kindof a joke, sorry the shorts are not easy to see in the picture, but at least you can get an idea..

Can I ask which burdastyle pattern you used for the shorts?  They're adorable, and I'm sure the adjustments weren't all that tough, right?  I'm, hoping?  Cheesy

Uhh the burdastyle pattern is free on their website, here's the link to it:

If I were you, i would make a muslin of the shorts first and see how the length/ inseam fall on you. I know I personally have a very long torso, maybe thats why I had to make the rise higher in order to have them be high waisted? At any rate, all I did for adjustments were like when you have a line on a pattern that says "shorten here" or "lengthen here"- I just cut a straight line, and extended the pattern with a piece of scrap paper and scotch tape (or shortened it by folding.)

Good luck!

I love everything! The shorts are amazing and the fabrics you picked for each item are so perfect. I think my favourite is the skirt, it's so pretty!
