Light green twill Ruby shorts with brown buttons.
The first pair of shorts I’ve ever made! I was really pleased with the welt pockets and especially the button holes because I’ve never felt particularly comfortable with them. I don’t have an automatic button hole function on my machine (it’s about 50 years old) so it’s a bit of work! The shorts are a bit too tight because the twill is such a heavy fabric.
Green twill; contrasting fabric for back pocket flap; brown buttons
