Description

I made the longer view of these shorts but omitted the ties.

I took my time matching up the pattern and I think it paid off. These are very comfortable shorts.

My only issue is that one half of the waistband was far too long (by maybe 5-8cm). I matched the side seams and then trimmed it back at the zip when I was ready to finish it off.

I used about 1m of home dec weight cotton.

    I really like these! They look really well made and the pattern is nicely matched up, which is no easy feat with your fabric choice I’m sure:)

      Thanks! Yep, there was a LOT of basting but I think it was worth it :)

      Cheers :) Hopefully it stays that way until we get some sun to wear them in! ;)
