I used a lightweight pinstripe linen blend to make these ruby shorts. I’ve been wanting to make them for a while now, and they were pretty simple to put together. I don’t know if I missed it or what, but the instructions for the button placket were missing, so I just put it together the way I thought it was supposed to go. I left out the pockets to keep it simple, clean and casual.
