Only slightly boring black shorts.

Only slightly boring black shorts.

There was a need for all black shorts. Not wanting to make the most boring pair of shorts in the history of boring shorts, I used this Ottobre pattern which has lots of cute details. Of course, black is really hard to photograph, but in real life they remind me of tuxedo pants.

There were a few bumps along the way. See how nicely that back pocket is sewn on? Too bad it’s through both back pieces.


It’s looks even better after the second go.

The shorts are slightly large on him – he’s due for a growth spurt anyway. This pattern was fun to sew and I’m already imagining better ways to use all the details. I kind of love welt pockets, but I always go back and watch Sew Better, Sew Faster before I do them.
