I made a muslin (shown above) for these shorts back in September. I used a cheap cotton fabric and purchased bias binding. I followed the pattern exactly while making the muslin. Overall it was very easy, the hardest part being the bias binding on the sides. I love that I was able to purchase and download the pattern and just print it at home. Yay! for instant gratification. The fit of the shorts is great. Below is the back of the shorts and you can see they're a little roomier in the rear than the front. Just as it should be.
Most nights it's a little too cold right now to wear shorts but I'm sure I'll get a lot of use out of them once summer arrives.
Here I've styled the shorts with:
Hand Knitted Socks
Open Weave Sweater (mine is old J.Crew, similar here and here)
Printed Tank Top (mine is from Target, similar here and here)
