    Awesome! It looks great on you and I love the check pattern fabric for the lining – it’s unexpected and gives the jacket a whole different feel. It sounds like you put a lot of work into this and i…

    5353332438_8f98c22a09_z_listing

    You may wonder why someone would want to make shorts in the middle of winter (it is winter in North America right now, at least). Well, I actually began making these over two years ago and for some…

    Thanks. Yeah, there’s no shoulder seam, the back and the top of the front is just one big piece. I was too lazy to cut two front pieces and sew at the shoulder so I thought, why not just make most …
