Added Aug 4, 2010
I made sailor shorts based on the Ruby pattern, but added a 9" lapped zipper, eight 1 1/8" buttons, and white bias tape. I also used black denim instead of linen and altered the pattern itself.
For those interested in the specifics of how it was done, I’ve provided a “configuration log” of sorts, which can be found on my blog here.
Hope you like them!
