So these are the first pair of shorts I’ve ever made! Exciting :)
They aren’t perfect, so next time I make shorts i’ll add front or back pockets (or both!) and make the fit better :)

    I had to make a pair of tailored shorts like that for one of my sewing classes, and it’s really difficult; especially the fly zipper (in my opinion, at least). Love your fabric choice!

    They look really nice on you! Judging from the pics they already fit nice, so I guess it will be minor adjustments that you have to make. Good luck with your second pair!

      Thank you! The fitting isues are more on the back side, so hopefully with my next pair of shorts i’ll be able to take pictures all around ;)
