This free pattern is for boudoir shorts and I saw the link on pinterest you can see it here Boudoir shorts, other than the hat pattern I printed out the other day I have not used a print out pattern for clothing before. It is a bit like doing a little jigsaw, I will keep this in a clear wallet now once I have amended a few pieces.
For my shorts I used the duvet cotton but backed it with white cotton so they are not see through, I like to lounge around the house in mine so that is why. I used some mint lace as the trim, now I have tried this I will get some nice soft jersey that I love to make more. These are nice but jersey is softer and will hang better in this style. Also the fact that mine are double thickness is making the waist casing a little bulky, that is ok on this pair as it was an exercise in trying them out first of all.
Here are mine...
I think these would also be good as regular holiday shorts, in a different fabric and leaving off the embellishments would probably make them look more like day wear. Let me know if you have tried this pattern and what you thought of it.
