Description

This is my first attempt at making pants/shorts! It wasn’t too bad after I finally figured out how to insert the fly zip (with the help of this Colette tutorial: http://www.coletterie.com/tutorials-tips-tricks/tutorial-sewing-a-fly-front).
The instructions that come with this pattern aren’t very clear, so I wouldn’t recommend it if you’re a beginner. The overall fit is pretty good, and I’m happy with how they turned out :)
