Description

I had some left over twill- an odd sized piece that would amount to about 1/3 a yard- and I decided to experiment with the Ellen Pants pattern that I had tried before. I made some alterations to make a pair of short shorts by shortening the waistband, changing the back to have patch pockets, and slightly adjusting the taper of the inseam. They were made without front inset pockets as I had just barely enough fabric, and the closure is a hidden button at the waist.
They have been incredibly useful with a recent heat wave, and have been a great way to use up random bottom weight fabrics.

    One THIRD of a yard? Wow, you must have used up every inch! And you’re tiny, which helps.

    Congratulations on successful magic. It looks great, and the outfit is lovely.

    I’ve just ordered some twill fabric that I wanted to use to make bermudas with this pattern, so you’ve given me the boost I needed. Now I can’t WAIT for the fabric (and my new machine) to arrive! LOL
