First of all thank you SarahLiz for confirming I am a light Spring because it is easy to second guess yourself
even after going through the steps on the site a couple of times .
Barbara here is the link - www.thechicfashionista.com . This will take you to the main site .Then click on fashion 101 at the top and then on colors . I tried to link directly but it didn`t work for some reason. Also I hope the site doesn`t have any issues with it but for what it is worth it doesn`t seem to ( this coming from a virtual computer illiterate ) .
BeaJay - Exactly !! your thoughts about the colour analysis what if you don`t really like them or you love ones that aren`t in your group - life is too short to be conscripted to certain rules . However I realise that I tend towards the colours that suit me - I prefer cream over white , navy over black , softer muted colours over really bright ones anyway.
OK , onto the shorts. I have made three pairs of New Look 6100 this year with one pair yet to come !
Two pairs were muslins - black and white spots and navy and white spots plain cotton before moving onto the `real ` fabric - a stretch cotton sateen with a circle pattern from Spotlight last year . In the end I went down two sizes from my daughter `s measurements because the ease added was a lot and I was using a stretch fabric and she did not want baggy shorts.

|The I can`t believe I am posting this on the internet shot.|
The shorts has a curved waist band/ yoke, front angled pockets and a side zip . They were fairly simple and came together well but trying to pattern match circles in the front, sides, yokes, pockets etc sent me loopy and in the end didn`t work out the way I wanted ( but I don`t think DD cares ) . I should say I made the straight leg pair but there is a flared leg version which would look good in a drapey patterned rayon .

PS I should clarify I don`t have a favourite child and because very rarely my family looks at this blog I love you all !
