Retro Shorts

Project Description

What are you most proud of? It was not an easy pattern, and I've always stayed away from making pants because of the waistbands and placket zippers...but I did it! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Follow the directions to the letter!

What you will need

  • Funky retro cotton fabric
