Marfy Shorts

My Marfy shorts are nearly complete.  I was going to get up this morning and stitch on the hook closure at the waist.  There were lots of things I was going to do this morning.  I lay awake half the night thinking about them, then fell asleep at dawn and got nothing done.  Anyways, a quick photo before my photographer went to work and here they are, hook to be sewn on later. 

Pattern: Marfy 1668

The patch pockets with the flaps seem to give them a squarish, mannish sort of look, so I find they best suit more girly tops.  I made this top before I started blogging.  It is Simplicity 5055, with the sleeves from another Simplicity pattern that I have since thrown out.  The fabric was from Knitwit.

I will put some pattern, fit and construction details in a pattern review.
