I used junespoon’s shorts pattern but omitted the back pockets. They fit nicely and were fun to make. I think I have done the hem differently to the instructions. Also the last two buttons have fake button holes. :) Hopefully the weather will warm up soon so I can wear them out!
6 buttons, bias tape (cotton) and 1 metre of material.
nb: The material I used is normally used for curtains. If this is your first time sewing with a pattern, I would recommend that you find a material that doesn’t fray easily. The material I used frayed quite easily and made the sewing a bit more difficult at times
