Description

These shorts are from the simplicity pattern 2367. I really liked the pattern except the sizing was way off. Normally I use a size smaller when using Simplicity but it was still way too big. I think I took them in a little too much but these shorts definetly helped me build confidence with pants/shorts. Now I’m going to try some pants with a zipper on the front.

    Girl those are cute shorts. And I don’t know why you didn’t have confidence in wearing shorts in the first place. Cute legs should be showed off a little. Just be thankful you don’t have chicken legs like I do! :)

    The pockets and belt loops are excellent. Great work!

    I really love those shorts! They have a very retro 1970s look to them (and that’s a really good thing!). Off to find that pattern….
