I have a RTW pair of shorts that have ripped on the pocket and lost the elasticity in the waistband, and I thought that this shorts pattern would be a good base to copy them. Here is a picture of the RTW inspiration pair.
I copied the front patch pocket detail, which is an unusual shape, from the RTW pair.
The back pockets are as per the pattern, only without the top-stitching.
The fabric is a Nani Iro cotton sateen, with a lovely sheen and a painted on dot. I got mine from Miss Matatabi. The fabric is a lighter weight and more sheer than I woulds normally use for shorts, but it is very similar in weight to the RTW pair, which I wore a lot.
I will change out the drawsrting for a closer colour match next time I get to a fabric store.
These shorts will most likely be part of my wardrobe entry at PR. Here they are being worn with two of the other wardrobe pieces (which I have yet to blog).
