I made these Bermuda shorts from a vintage Seventies Vera tablecloth I found at my local Salvation Army. I used Simplicity 5044, a vintage mens shorts pattern. They have a cool enclosed elastic section in the back waistband which keeps them snug. They were fun to make and I look forward to wearing them this summer, with or without the matching terrycloth shirt (which was what inspired me to make them in the first place).
