This pattern takes some elements of Burdastyle’s Ruby Shorts #6005 and adds a twist to make them into sailor shorts. To create this garment you’ll need to get the Ruby pattern and also download the extra pieces I have designed. The shorts sit on the waist just below the belly button and fastens with 10 functional buttons, five on each side.
*NOTE: all pattern pieces already include 5/8" seam allowance
1.25 yds of stretch twill, stretch popling (as shown above), linen, cotton, gabardine, lightweight corderoy, or any bottom weight fabric
multipurpose thread of matching color
10 buttons (5/8" – 1"; mine were 5/8" in diameter)
3/4 yard of medium weight interfacing
