What's on my brand-new, humongous sewing table today?

Burda 7966 - the shorts for L first, then the pants/capris for me. It's a mother-daughter pattern! Note to the wise, make a trial run, literally if you do run and have well-developed quadriceps. Making L's usual size, she found them a little tight and pulling across the upper thigh. They are surprisingly closely fitted. I cut another pair two sizes up and they felt and looked much better on her. If you look at the photo, even on the model they look a little tight. They have the same waistband and pockets as Burda 7965.
