Description

An outfit designed for and modeled by my boyfriend. He’s lost a bit of weight since the start of the project so they fit a bit more loosely than expected.

*Shorts based on pattern: http://www.burdastyle.com/pattern_store/patterns/42010-mens-trousers
*Other patterns were drafted and designed by myself

Modifications:
-I wanted to give the shorts an edgier more rocker look so they mesh well with my boyfriend’s band t-shirts
-Added my own version of bellowed cargo pockets – placement is the same as pattern
-Hip pockets were changed
-Hardware added – snaps, rivets, jeans button (spray painted gunmetal grey)
-Flap shape changed to angle instead of straight across
-Belt loops slightly modified

Material Notes

Fabric:
100% cotton

    I really like the modifications you made. So much more on-trend. I think I’m going for this pattern now. Thanks for the inspiration!
