Calder Shorts

Love this pattern. The first pair of pants/shorts that I can wear out of my house. And the pockets are so well drafted and don't gap. I made 2 pairs of shorts the first was a 20 based on my waist. Super cute and flowy. The are a bit tight due to the elastic which is hard to alter at this time. The next pair I made a 20 waist graded to a 14 for the hips and legs and measured the elastic a bit bigger than the 20. I also took about an inch out of the rise to make a closer fit. When I graded the sizing on the second pair it was so severe in such a small area that the bottom of the shorts flare out a bit, but I think this was operator error. I have a couple more pairs planned out

Game Changer!

I cherish all my Cashmerette patterns but this one has made the most difference to me. Pants where always the hardest to find when going shopping and even if I would eventually find some that kind of fit me, it was always a question of settling with the least worst option. These might be the first pants that actually fit me perfectly in my life. I made them in a size 18 according to the measurements table but found them too wide. Sized down to a 16 and they are perfect. Made with a drapey twill - they are exquisit. Thank you so much for all this amazing work Cashmerettes! Keep going and bless us with loads of fabulous pants!

Ich liebe all meine Schnittmuster von Cashmerette, aber dieses hier hat mich wirklich umgehauen. Hosen zu finden, war immer das größte Problem für mich, als sich noch von der Modeindustrie abhängig war. Und das unabhängig davon, welche Größe ich trug. Auch mit Größe 38 ging es immer nur darum, das geringste Übel zu wählen und so richtig gepasst hat es einfach nie. Das dürfte die erste Hose sein, die mir wirklich richtig passt. Habe Sie nach Maßtabelle zunächst in einer 18 gemacht, was aber viel zu groß war. In der 16 sitzen sie nun perfekt. Habe einen fließenden, mittelschweren Twill gewählt und sie sind einfach fantastisch geworden. Wer mit dem Schnitt liebäugelt und Zweifel hat, ob die Englischkenntnisse ausreichen, den kann ich nur ermutigen, den Schnitt auszuprobieren. Ich denke, man könnte das sogar als selbstbewusste*r Anfänger*in schaffen. Sogar wenn man einfach nur auf die Abbildungen schaut. Es ist wirklich einfach konstruiert und überhaupt kein Problem.

Love my Calder shorts!

I don’t know if I will ever make Calder pants but I knew as soon as the pattern was released that they would be perfect shorts. The comfortable elastic waist, the cute flared legs and the roomy pockets make these a dream. I’m wearing a pair in lightweight denim right now and have another pair cut out and waiting to be sewn. They’re great!

Easy Breezy

I made a quick muslin of the Calder shorts to check fit. They are perfect. Sits smoothly at the natural waist with flattering flow through the hips. They sewed together so quickly. Directions were easy to follow and I can’t wait to make another pair! In the future, I’m looking to adjust the crotch rise as I’m far wider than I am tall.
