Brown Skate Shorts for Noel

Added Jul 20, 2013

Placentia, Calif...






Since my son Noel liked his first shorts so much, he turned around and bought material for more fabric to make another pair of shorts. This time I used Burdastyle 4/12 #131 shorts pattern for men. I lengthened it quite a bit and made the legs narrower. He liked this one even more. You can’t see the welt pocket in the back but that’s what differs from the 1st pair of shorts. Easy project and as you can see durable enough to withstand some skate tricks.

Material Notes

1.5 yards brown twill, 9 in zip, interfacing, button,




Summer, Spring
Garment Type
Beach, Casual

      Yes, comfort was a must but length and fit was also so important. It’s hard to make the kid happy!
