Description

A copy of a pair of shorts I’ve owned and loved for many summers, but which needed to be retired! I picked apart the seams of the old pair and traced them out to be a new pattern. It worked a treat and these new shorts are virtually indistinguishable from the old ones :) I even managed to recycle the buttons and the zipper in this pair!

    Um,,,,GORGEOUS!! Such a good idea that I always forget…unpicking stuff that you know is a great fit already.

    Excellent copy of your favourite shorts. You have done a great job of the pockets and zip. Well done as usual Melanie.
