Description

Misses’ shorts in 3 lengths and belt. Shorts have mock fly, slanted pockets, carrier and hem variations; shorts D has belt.

I made view C in a size 10.

The only thing I added were 2 small darts in the back waist band so it would fit a bit more snug. I wanted to make it exactly as written because this is my muslin-hence the cheapo fabric.

I do have some things I would change for next time. The pockets are gaping a lot. Some other reviewer said to use stay tape (I think..I have to look that up again) to fix the gaping.

I would also add a button hole above the zipper instead of the hook & eye. It just seems like the hook & eye isn’t strong enough for such a highly used area.

The leg openings are the perfect width. The fit is really pretty good and I’m happy with the outcome. Maybe next time, I could also add a back pocket.

Material Notes

Some cheap mildly stretchy cottony type fabric
