Shorts in a Jiffy from the Salvaged Wreck

I put in the last stitches on my pink plaid top one quiet night this week and thought, "Hmm... Everyone's in bed. Maybe I should make something else before I hit the sack." The sewing machines, the iron, and I communed in the still of the night and brought forth these simple shorts - except the waistband. I figure it might scar a child for life to wake up from a deep sleep to find his mom trying to get a measuring tape around his waist.

These are the "Bert" shorts from Ottobre 3-2009-23. They feature 4 patch pockets and a faux fly, plus some topstitching.

The fabric is part of what I salvaged from my previous capri pants disaster. Although I like this shorts pattern, I'm not so sure about the combination of lightweight stretch khaki poplin and royal blue topstitching for boys' shorts. At least they will be very cool for summer.


  1. I'm glad you were able to salvage the capris. The shorts for your son look great.


Sorry to add word verification. Too much spam lately....
