I’ve made a few pairs of bottoms from the Jedediah Pants sewing pattern (including capris!). But with the summer heat setting in here in Denver, I knew I wanted another pair of shorts, and I knew I wanted them in a fun color for the summer.Pattern: Jedediah Pants/Shorts by Thread Theory
Materials: Ventana Twill in Gold
Size: 38” waist, no adjustments to pattern other than adjusting final length to desired shorts length
One of the things I enjoy most about making pants and shorts is having fun with the pocket and bias fabric I use to bind my seams. Because the fabric is mostly hidden on the inside, it is a fun detail that allows me to really enjoy the construction, and play with patterns and colors I don’t normally use in my garments! In this pair of shorts, I used a floral lawn that I had picked up a while ago from the store.Overall these shorts were pretty straightforward. Since I had made the pattern before, the only tricky bits were setting the fly (which is always a bit tricky!) and deciding on the final length. I’m very happy with these shorts and plan on wearing them throughout the rest of the summer!
