1st Shorts

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I used the parts I liked from some old jeans and pockets from a lutterloh pattern to make a pair of shorts. I decided not to try to put in a back yoke. I used a dart on each side of the back and a half elastic waist with a zipper and fly. In short, i figured out how to achieve the effect that I wanted and ended up with a wearable pair of shorts with a better fit than I can find in the store. As you can see from the front view, the zipper shows at the top of the fly, so I will have to adust that. But all things considered, I am very pleased with this 1st attempt! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Go ahead and give it a try. You might be surprised at what you can do! I know I was!
