Pastel striped Ruby. This fabric was a pain because it kept fraying (even on finished seams)! Because of the fraying issue, I used a light weight green polka-dot cotton for the pockets, inner waistbands and underlap. I was worried that button holes wouldn’t hold up (the fraying issue again), so I used chrome snaps instead. I also lengthened the inseam by 3 inches or so.
Some sort of slubbed poly-blend, thin cotton for the pockets/waistbands/underlap. All yard sale or ebay finds.
Make something special and practical for your friends and family this holiday season!
