I took the challenge (with myself)! I made shorts yay!
Overall I’m happy, since I never made any before, but the fit isn’t perfect I think. Also I think I did some weird thing to the zipper fly, but you can’t tell from the outside ;).
I do like how simple it is, without belt-loops and those things, and I found some amazing red denim which is super-comfy.
I lined the pockets with the polka-dot chambray I had leftover. Look at those piping pockets, first I ever made :D I know it can be done better, but yay!
(Also I’m sorry, but red is a real challenge to photograph!)
