These shorts were my additional project for my #burdachallenge2018 in June! I used the shorts pattern from the 06/2018 issue, and they turned out wonderfully. I had some leftover denim from our Jean Jacket Sew-Along and picked up a huge roll of this neon retro trim that I was just dying to use.

I cut a size 38 in these – I do normally take a size 40 in my bottom patterns, but since the silhouette was quite roomy I decided to go with the lower size. I also omitted the side seam pockets since the denim was so thick and I wanted to reduce bulk.
