There are a few reasons why I chose these shorts in particular. They were pleated at the front which I have found suits my body shape, they have a side zip so I didn’t have to be too picky learning to master the front fly and the pattern is actually for pants as well so I was able to make them a bit longer according to the pattern. I am so happy I chose this pattern! I loved the way it turned out and for the first time I actually like wearing shorts!! I was so excited to have some new shorts for Hawaii I ended up making about 5 pairs in little under 2 weeks.
