After making a few Clara’s for my mom, I decided that I wanted to make a few more for myself. I decided to try a completely different version this time around, the shorts. Sadly, this did not work out too well for me. Why? Two words: Thick Thighs.
This style hits mid thigh – which is exactly where my legs are the fullest. Even though my fabric had plenty of stretch, they still feel tight at the seam… plus I think the style only accentuates that my legs resemble Arnold Schwarzenegger’s in Conan the Barbarian. I will say that these do look pretty adorable paired up with the Dolman Tee that I recently made (as you can see, I never did figure out how to embellish it).
