Shorts based on the “clean slate pants” pattern by Blank Slate patterns. 18 month size with adjustable elastic waist. I used this tut to add an adjustable waist: http://www.nobigdill.com/2012/07/diy-buttonhole-elastic.html?m=1.
I’m not totally happy with the pattern—baggy yet low in the back—so I’ll probably redraft the crotch seam, but that’s what I get for not making a muslin!
Grey twill with contrast pocket lining, yellow top stitching, and a jeans button.
Take off with pleats, cut-outs, insets, and futuristic prints.
