Description

I sew these based on some shorts from Vila. I used the pattern “Maggie” from Fitzpatterns.com. I altered it a bit, added a belt and made some other changes. Here is the result!

Material Notes

    Love them! I think I am going to have to make these. What changes did you make?

      Sorry for the late answer. I made backpockets, made them a bit longer so I could fold them up, and added the belt.

      Thanks, but actually it’s not me in the picture, but my friend Maria. I’ll tell her you said so :) Thanks!

    such a great outcome !! the original pattern does not say much but the look you gave to it is terrific. I love the paper look the fabric gives. Congrats

      I know, the original pattern is pretty simple and basic. But pretty easy to change, so go try it out :) Thank you!
