Safari Shorts

My favorite shorts pattern that I used many times.
I cropped the legs and narrowed down the waist by 2 cm. Also, I altered the pattern to incorporate classic front pockets. On the back I played a bit with pockets as well – I made two vented pockets on each side, but added a pocket flap to just one of them. Also, I added belt loops that are decorated with buttons.

I love these shorts, they are so comfortable.

    I can’t believe they are self-made either! Nice Butt AnaJan! HOW do you make your clothes fit so well! I just can’t believe how delicate and perfect the loops are that you have sewn! You really are so talented.
