Whether you call them walking shorts, city shorts, or even Bermuda shorts -- sometimes you want shorts that keep you cool in hot temperatures, but are just a bit more conservative in length. Style Arc to the rescue! You've really got to love a company that not only has well drafted, nicely fitting styles that are fun to sew, but also is so responsive to their customer's needs. A casual mention to designer Chloe that such a style would be nice to have -- and voila!
Pattern: Style Arc Karen Walk Shorts, available in Australian RTW sizes 6 - 30. Longer leg length (approximately 10 inches in my size), with a lower rise and wide waistband. Optional belt loops and back welt pockets (which I didn't sew in this version). Made from a cotton/Lycra twill from Fabric Mart.
This is a pattern that will be sewn up again and again.
