Gray Pinstripe Ruby Shorts

Added Jul 8, 2011

by katy-lady

Milwaukee, Wisco...






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.

Material Notes

Dark gray linen, yellow buttons, yellow embroidery floss

    These are great. The yellow stitching and buttons with the pinstriped fabric is perfect
