This pattern was made by sacrificing a pair of RTW shorts.
Most of the problems that I encountered with these shorts came from the length of time I took between cutting and sewing them up, during which I forgot how wide I had cut the seam allowance.
The leg lengths are even I promise, it’s just the way they are positioned.
These guys include:
- My first attempt at a fly front zipper.
- A single welt back pocket and two side pockets.
- Flat felled and bias bound seams as well as some I just hit with the zig zag stitch.
I’m particularly pleased with the way I managed to neatly join the waist band to the shorts at the centre front. I’ve never tried a zipper that ends in a button but it went together really easily, especially compared to the amount of times I redid the fly front.
