Cream Soda Shorts!
A few reminders to myself: On the next pair, make the plackets approximately 1/4" wider. The button holer had some hate on, kept gumming up. I'm sitting here fixing the button holes by hand as they are already unraveling. Also: the waist band needs to taper in for more shape. Again, I forgot about the curve of my lower back. I tried to throw a dart in, but it pulled the whole shorts out of shape. I'm just going to leave it being slightly square on this pair, and fix it up for the next pair.
The next pair I say? I say indeed!
For my first ever shorts pattern, I think I did pretty decent!
( PS Plackets need work. Need to be less bulky in the corners/seams and stiffer!)
