Based on Burdastyle Andre, these lightweight cotton shorts fit in perfectly with our Aussie beachside, laid-back, shorts and flip-flops lifestyle.
I lengthened the leg by 20cm, and added two back pockets. The pockets are big enough for my boyfriend, Dave to carry his wallet and phone, because otherwise, I highly doubt he would wear the shorts at all! I feel like the pockets could have been stitched a bit closer together, but overall I’m quite pleased how these shorts turned out. Lucky for me, Dave, my Dad and my brother are all the same size, so I am going to make shorts for my family as Christmas presents out of the same pattern.
