My brother gave me a bunch of button up shirts that no longer fit him I held onto them for a really long time and then last week I suddenly realized I could make shorts for B out of them!
There was enough fabric for a boys size 7, well 8 in length and 1" added at the hem from a large short sleeved mens shirt.
The pockets are simple rectangles from the scraps.
I used Melissa's Blank Slate shorts pattern and the fly went together perfectly I will definitely be using her patterns again!
The button is Faux I was not in the mood to do a real button hole and this really worked out well since the fabric is so light weight.
You can see seams from the original shirt in some places; I think it adds character plus I highly doubt anyone will notice, lol!
...........And this wouldn't be a post without a silly pose from B.
Have a great day!
