My first pair of shorts! Made these using a pattern from Dixie DIY , but modified it to put in a side zipper instead of buttons along both sides. I used an ikat print cotton canvas Oscar de la Renta fabric from Mood Fabrics , which was stiff enough to have some structure, but also a tiny bit of stretch to make them comfortable.
