Description

I liked the idea of shorts without a zipper – not just because of sewing in a zipper is a littel bit tedious, but the style idea is great.
I omitted the really nice backpocktes, but I really like this idea of junespoon too, and I’m thankfull for this nice pattern. I really like to wear my sailor shorts.

The two lower buttons are just fake (without real buttonhole).

At some parts the instruction wasn’t so clear (maybe because I’m no native speaker), more pictures would have been more helpful, but I could figure out how the pices work together – puuhh a lot of thinking ;-)

sorry for the not so good pics, just took them with the phone – who knows how long the summer will last, . . . .

Material Notes

Linen (blue-white striped) & 6 Buttons (Palmers)
and a little bit of white cotton for the bias tape

    Very nice – did you have to resize the pattern?
