After going on vacation this summer and realizing I had basically one pair of shorts that worked, I put “shorts” in my list of things to sew. I made these for wearing in both summer and fall, out of wool pants that had been eaten by moths and needed new life.
You can read slightly more at my blog, as well as seeing the photos side by side: http://motorharp.livejournal.com/208322.html. I hope you’ll stop by!
