Shorts on the Line

This month there is a lot going on in the blogsphere. One of the exciting events taking place in July is "Shorts on the line", organized by Rachel from Imagine Gnats.

I don't have much time but I really had to give it a try, plus my son can always use another pair of shorts!
For this project I used a pattern from the book Sewing for Boys.

I took the Treasure pocket pants pattern I had already traced in size 6/7 and redesign it to be slimmer and shorter. I took about an inch from each front and back pattern pieces. And I took 7 inches from the legs lenght.
I sew as the plans recomended and did topstitching in constrasting thread.

I wanted something really fresh do I used soft linen for both main and contrast fabric. I couldn't be more happy with the result; and as you can see neither could my kid! See how he moves!

Hop over to the Flickr group and find out what all these lovely girls have been doing!
