Shorts; Done Right and Wrong

Hello Refashion Co-op. I made some short recently. The first pair just needed a hem. They turned out so well it went to my head.

 I decided to make another pair of shorts from this blue skirt.

 There seemed to be enough fabric to use a pattern. What could go wrong?

Well, The full gathered skirt didn't work well as shorts.

I knew the shorts would be full and loose. I expected that they would be a little poofy in the legs. I thought that would be cute.

It wasn't cute. It was awful. They made my backside and upper thighs look HUGE! The proportions were all wrong. This isn't what I thought they would look like.

Oh well. That's life! For more pictures and details of this disaster go to I Can Work With That.
