You may remember, a few weeks ago, I tested Seamingly Smitten's BOYS Classically Cool Cargo Shorts pattern, using a thrifted man's shirt I bought for a dollar?
Jenny's pattern adjustment, allows for a waistband, and contrasting fabric pockets if desired. With my brown 12-18 month size shorts,
I went with a simple jersey stretch fabric waist band, and used the same shirt
fabric for each leg side pocket, with two reclaimed buttons from the front of the original shirt.
Additionally, the luck you get when you dig about in the haberdashery baskets in the back of op shops, I was lucky enough to find an iron on cowboy hat motif in Salvos last week, for 50c.
The Seamingly Smitten BOYS Classically Cool Cargo Shorts pattern is available here (go to the Boys category). This is such a great project to do for beginners, and experienced stitchers will be able to sew a pair of boys shorts in next to no time!
