I had started cutting out the pattern pieces for jeans, but I just realized with summer and good weather ahead I need shorts or skirts. I do have a few skirts, but I would not call them "easy wear". I am not a skirt person I guess, and I need to feel comfortable with the garment. It needs to feel as easy-going as a pair of jeans and not be all dressed up or fancy or "neat". So the skirts I have would be more for a wedding, or for a work presentation. You know.....not really, "ohh it's a bit warmer today, let's wear a comfy skirt" kinda skirts.
And the shorts...well, let's just say that after the last post of letting out the darts in my beige skirt, I wish my shorts had darts too. I had to chuck out most of them and give away, as refashions were not possible or would have ruined them. Anyway, I'm down to one pair of shorts and 2 possible skirts. And I do want to make some shorts, just not keen on the recent patterns I have seen. Burdastyle has got some nice shorts, but I just hate the button details. Am I correct in assuming I can use any normal pants pattern and make shorts out of them? Anyone out there that can recommend me some easy-going patterns? I would appreciate the help!
