Description

I made these shorts using New Look pattern 3420, in a size small. They came out huge (way too big in the waist area)! Other than that, I love the design. I’m definitely making them again with slight changes to the measurements and maybe in a soft suede fabric.

I used Wool (Herringbone) fabric, zipper, hooks, and fusible interfacing.
