Oh yes... they are finished! Here they are *drumroll*...
The finished Bella high-waisted shorts (based on the Burdastyle Bella Trousers). Looking pretty good, aren't they?
I had hoped to take these photos outside in the summery sunshine, alas, today was wet and thundery in Sydney (not that I'm complaining - I love this weather!). So here are the shorts modelled with a cardigan.
Boy, these shorts really were a challenge to get finished - I had problems at every step. Even when I was stitching on the buttons, of which I only had five, I stitched on four then reached for the fifth one to finish it off... and I couldn't find it! I called in boyfriend and we looked everywhere - on the desk, under the sewing machine, on the floor - it was nowhere to be found. Then suddenly I remembered - it was in the automatic button-hole foot for my sewing machine. Duh! Thankfully I got the last button on and I am very happy with them.
Ok summer, you can come now, I'm ready!
