Shorts for summer.
I bought some cheap fabric to make a practice pair of shorts, to see how they fit. I used the Anita jeans pattern, just cut the legs short. I didn’t use the pockets from the pattern – I made some with applique hearts on them. I used a dome instead of a button and didn’t add the belt loops. These shorts are a little too high for my liking but they are so, so comfy!
Linen 55% Viscose 45% blend. For the pockets I used some fabric my friend Tats brought me from Japan.
