Corduroy Ruby Shorts

Added Jun 9, 2008

Temple, Texas, U...






My first Burda Pattern! (Slightly modified) I made two pockets on the back and went without the belt and pocket flap (because of the fabric, they added too much bulk). My buttons were bigger than I thought, so I did four instead of five on the side. I used a thin fabric for the lining (minimize bulk), then made a shirt out of the left overs (for some reason, I bought a lot of this fabric).

Material Notes

No wale corduroy with a little stretch, slightly stretchy silky fabric, buttons
