I made these shorts last Sat. while my husband was looking after our daughter.
I used Burdastyle-Ruby as a base pattern, but instead of using buttons on the side for closure, I just used a zipper fly in the front.
It was my very first time making shorts/pants,
so it was a bit challenging, especially trying to figure out how to insert a zipper fly.
I used a sewing book for a reference.
I also made the belt to tie a bow on the waist. You can place the bow anywhere you like – front, side or back!
and, yes, those white things you see in the first photo are my daughter’s cloth diapers :P
