At the Wicker Park fest a few weekends ago, I noticed a lot of girls had high waisted shorts. That inspired me to use this Butterick pattern 8170 and left over fabric from my red office dress.
When I initially put these shorts together they were a little larger than I wanted. I figured they were made of cotton and I could throw then in the dryer a littler longer and might shrink a little. They shrank almost too much. Of course I washed the fabric before I started sewing but this makes me want to wash cotton fabric twice before I sew with it. Does this happen with anyone else?
