I tried out the Ruby shorts pattern with some stretchy dark denim. I tried lengthening the pattern a couple inches to see if the fit was better, and I was hoping to get a high-waisted look also. I like how they ended up fitting – I think they look kind of retro if I wear them with a shirt tucked in. I used a bunch of white buttons that all have different textures on them for some extra detail. This was a bit more challenging pattern for me but I’m really happy with how it turned out!
