These were such a satisfying make and gave me the opportunity to practice new techniques. Namely, plaid matching, lapped zipper and my first attempt at making shorts! I used leftover fabric from my vintage plaid dress so it was a great stash bust too! I really must get that pile reduced before I invest in any more material. I can’t bear the way that Mr Ooobop! rolls his eyes at it, any longer!
More details and photos over at the usual place !
