I saw an amazing pair of shorts online recently and was inspired to make my own pair. I started with BurdaStyle’s Ruby shorts pattern as a base. I altered the front quite a bit, added pockets, used an invisible zip on the side, and added a buttoned flap on the waistband to cover the top of the zipper. The materials were all purchased secondhand, excluding the invisible zipper. The buttons are actually made from coins! These shorts are perfect to wear to my summer job at the pool!
