Scallop shorts

Hi everyone!

How are you all doing? I'm currently away on vacation in Italy and I'm having a great time. It has been so hot at times that you couldn't bribe me into touching my computer, so this post has taken longer than I intended. Better late than never, right? And that certainly counts for this pair of shorts I'm sharing today!
I actually made those two years ago already... I'm still loving them, though, and I have worn them so many times already, I thought they deserved a little spotlight.

The pattern I used is Burdastyle 04/2013 #102. I adapted the pattern slightly to create the scalloped hem, but that really is all I changed. The shorts are lined, fully french-seamed (I was so proud of that) and have pockets. I did make a slight mistake while sewing in the pockets, so they tend to turn inside out from time to time, something I need to pay extra attention to next time I'm giving them a go. The fabric was actually a thrifted skirt that I bought at Think Twice (my favourite Belgian thrift store) and I scored it for 1 or 2 euros. I still have some fabric left over, and I think it might even be enough to make a top.

More posts are on their way!



  1. Those are really cute shorts! I'm actually making a pair of Burda Style shorts right now, myself. I'm hoping they turn out nicely.

    1. Thank you, Carmen! I love wearing them. Good luck with the shorts, I hope they turn out the way you want them to!
