I inherited these shorts from my grandma, well the fabric anyways :o)
She had them all cut out and everything, but I think she must have forgot how to sew shorts together because she started sewing the 2 fronts together, she stopped and never finished them!
I guessed that they would fit C, if not I had 2 other boys to try! I was in luck and he loves them and has even worn them twice even though it is still quite chilly outside.
I really should have traced the pattern for future use I love the way they fit and the length is perfect! I still probably will but it would have been easier if I had thought of it sooner.
I have no idea what kind of fabric it is, its sort of like corduroy/twill/denim with a roughish/fuzziness to it, great explanation right?
