Inspired by Timo Rissanen (Fashion Creation Without Fabric Waste Creation), I managed to cut out a top, a bias skirt and this pair of shorts with just 3 yards of 54" wide linen. There are no scraps bigger than 6" square after I was through.
The eagle-eyed may see where I pieced together the waistband piece.
My only beef with it is that it would be easier to ride if the shorts were shorter.
At first, they looked like baggy pajamas, but I trimmed the crotch depth 1/4" at the CB, 1/2" at the sides and
3/4" at the CF at the top edge. It isn't noticeable in the side view, but it improves the overall fit.
Pattern Review is here.
