Hullo, this is my first clothing post on this lovely site so bear(Rawr!) with me.
I made these shorts using an easy burda pattern, the first three pictures are how the shorts looked after i extended the pattern, the last pic shows them shortened. I had alot of trouble putting in a zip properly, so that came out and i put in a hook 'n' eye. I think i may have used the wrong kind of fabric, it feels like thick upholstery fabric but anyway it was my first go and i was really pleased with how they came out.
(my boyfriend said they looked grannyish but i think this may be the fabric???)







Shortened shorts...



Comments or any advise would be greatly appreciated as i'm going into my first year of textile and fashion design in a few weeks and i'm a total novice!

Thanks muchly

ooh, I like these a lot. 

The zipper makes it not granny-ish, I think.  Plus, people are just used to shorts as glorified denim panties.
