Stilt Shorts Progress Update

This week, I received the material for the shorts and finished drafting the shorts pattern. Next week, I’m going to make a muslin of the shorts to be sure I’ve got the right fit. Making sure that the details of the fly and leg stripe are neat and in the right places. 🙂

I wanted to emotionally get ready to finish drafting the pattern and learn the details of sewing the shorts. To be sure I had the details in my head, I reviewed the Ginger Jeans pattern and watched the fly and waistband segments of this video about making jeans by Cornelius Quiring. I feel much more confident now having done that.
