    Wow! I tried to make some shorts last summer and they failed terribly so major well done to you! I think mine are still sitting in a bag somewhere waiting to be finished… I love the buttons and how well they go with the fabric!

    These are really good….I have been longing to make a pair of shorts but just havent found the right pattern. Do you have a blog? Could you make a tutorial on how to make these? Thanks x

    These are gorgeous!! I love how you did the buttons instead of a zipper for closer. Also the pocket stitching is wonderful.
