Brown Wailers

This is the last of my summer sewing. The weather has changed noticeably the last few days: chilly mornings and hayfever.

These shorts are the Wailers from Ottobre 3-2010-19, but I shortened them from their "capri" length to about the knees. They should be good through next summer, too.

Alex had a very specific color in mind when I told him I was going to make him shorts: brown and definitely not light brown. After much digging through stash, we happily found the perfect fabric. It's a heavier woven . . . not quite burlap, but it makes me think of burlap.


I like the interesting details here, especially the contrast color for the waistband, drawstring, and pocket openings.

  1. I really like the way these look! I have them on my list for P even though I think I'll need to size them up for him.
