Plaid Ruby Shorts

I lengthened the pattern in the leg and the crotch. I found the bound pocket tutorial here on BurdaStyle to be very helpful. There are a lot of details and the project took longer than I had expected. Eliminating the pockets and belt would make it much easier. But, it’s good practice for advanced techniques.

Material Notes

lightweight cotton plaid

    These are really cute, normally I don’t care for longer shorts cause they end up looking boyish, but yours are great!
