I just keep making shorts…I don’t even WEAR them all that often but they use up very little material and they sew up so quickly, so, here we go, more shorts.
I used scraps from a skirt I had made about a month ago, and my trusty Simplicity 7688, my go-to shorts pattern. One of these days I will make the pants…
The material is a linen-cotton blend. Wrinkles like hell, sigh. I made flat felled seams throughout, and used an invisible zipper because I didn’t have anything else on hand.

Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
