Bourne, United K...
The bottom of the Ruby shorts combined with the top of the Kasia skirt.
I first wanted to make this when the Ruby shorts came out but never got around to it till the spring 2010 collections started hitting the shops and there was a large amount of military still shorts and skirts so i thought i’d jump on the trend and make it my own.
The top buttons werent sewn on far enough apart so the front gaps a little (i havent got round to changing it yet cause i always wear it with a belt) but the buttons themselves i fell in love with and i think they make the shorts.
Had to alter the pocket because of the crotch so there isnt a pocket in the flap anymore and i also left the pockets off the shorts to keep it simple against the front
I also forgot to continue the zip into the yokes at the front so had to add hooks and eyes.
White and greyblue stripe stretchy cotton blend (from the reminants from a diesel collection)
Patterned polyester lining
Silver colour coated plastic buttons with anchors
Zip and then hooks with thread eyes to try and correct my zip error
