Shorts or a skirt? You can only actually tell the difference from the back! Today we want to sew the shorts “Rieke” from our magazine “inspiration” with you:
The pattern is available in sizes 36-46. We chose a patterned viscose fabric, which is perfect for hot summer days but still very elegant – especially when paired with a trendy blazer in a contrasting colour.
You can download the pattern for free until July 31, 2022 in the paragraph “Download the free sewing pattern for the “Rieke” shorts (July only)”. As always, you’ll have to be quick because each pattern is only available for free download in the month stated.
Missed the free download?
Are you too late, but you still really want to sew the shorts? You can buy the pattern in the “inspiration” online shop at the following link:
Sewing the shorts “Rieke”
The wide pleat in the front ensures a comfortable width and follows your every move.
The in-seam zip was inserted invisibly into the left side seam with the Invisible-zipper foot # 35. The graphic print emphasizes the modern style and makes the shorts a special eye-catcher.
Take a look at the magazine…
The pattern and sewing instructions for the “Rieke” shorts appeared in the inspiration Magazine 62, featuring many inspiring projects for summer: an airy summer dress as shown below, a classy white blouse with buttons in the back, summer clothes for kids and many more.
Unfortunately, the issue 62 is now out of print. Maybe you are lucky and find it in a local sewing store! You can still buy some of the patterns and other issues of the inspiration Magazine online or have them conveniently delivered to your home.
