The day I wore my Petite shorts, I noticed that they fell down my hips a little, and it's been more evident on the second view, maybe because the fabric is thinner. So I have reviewed the pattern because I wanted something more fitted. The alteration is been minimal but it worked. This version is a little different. The cut where the scallops were, now is opened, finished with facings and closed with buttons. This time the opening is not fake, so I haven't installed a zipper. I took 4 centimetres from the width of the thigh and avoided the darts on the back, taking out the depth of the dart in the center back and side back. And I added pockets. It has also a waistband. I'm very happy with the result. My sister wants already a pair, in fact she thinks that this model is made for her. The best of all is that this is the cheapest thing I've sewn in my life. Besides that I had everything in my stash, the blue fabric is from bed sheets that costed, by the weight, about 8 euros 4'5 metres and the printed fabric is the most famous fabric from IKEA, I've seen it in shirts, skirts and dresses, and it costed about 8 euros more than 2 metres, also by the weight. I had the buttons too, my mother says they are 40 years. I remember watching them in the buttons box since I was a child, and finally I've found something to use them in. This is the first time I use internlining and I have a question: Which is the best way to finish the seams? Because by using the bias tape, being four layers is a little bulky.
