Description

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!

      Unfortunately not. I actually found that shirt (and the rest of the outfit, save for the shorts) at a thrift store.

      Glad you like them, though — thanks so much for the kind words!

    1. Thank you thank you for posting your alterations on your blog! I’ve been wondering how to make these shorts differently and you’ve just helped me big time. 2. I am in competition with you for the whitest person ever! Faired skinned people rock.
