Me-Made-June Day seven

Hello, how are you? I'm happy I have brand new shorts to show you today :) The pattern comes from the French crafts magazine "Fait Main" and it was super pleasant to sew: it has great details such as front pockets, a wide waistband, cute pleats on the front and more importantly it still went together very well despite my butchering the front closure! There were supposed to be exposed buttons on the fly but I hid them instead except for the waistband ones for which I used a couple of cute kitty buttons I bought in Japan last year. Frankly after seeing the horror that was my fly at first it was a nice surprise that the shorts ended perfectly wearable. I'll definitely keep my mistakes in mind for the next pair -I intend to sew more, they're so comfy and pretty! Oh, and for these ones I used green twill stolen from mama's stash:

See you!

  1. I'm quite jealous...none of the pattern companies here in America have ANY good new shorts patterns, not even a basic short! They all either have drawstring waists or are scary bloomer things.

  2. I like those short a lot, the color and the style. They look great on you!
