Navy gingham ruby shorts

There were a lot of firsts with these shorts : first overlocked seams, first buttoned pants, first project with cryptic instructions, first patch pockets! I followed the tutorial Casey provides on her wonderful blog for those, and I can’t be happier with them.

These shorts are part of a matching gingham wardrobe I made for the Summer Essentials Sew Along. You can see it here !

Material Notes

navy gingham, plastic buttons

    I don’t love gingham. I never wear shorts. But after seeing these, I changed my mind completely!! I may have a copycat pair in my future…

    Was looking for some reassurance on the pattern for these shorts and I certainly found it! I love your version. Gingham is a winner!

    could you tell us exactly where to find the tutorial? I went to the link and it showed how to do patch pockets. By the way those shorts look awesome!

    Thank you all for your kind comments!

    Aluckmann and Zickzack, I think gingham is more or less the perfect fabric for summer shorts. If you choose the Ruby pattern, with Eunnyjang, we’ll look like chorus girls in matching uniforms!

    These are great – I love them! I’ve seen the pattern made up a few times, but after seeing yours, I really want to make them up. Aren’t Casey’s tutorials amazing? I just used her scalloped collar tutorial to modify my Pendrell blouse.
