Shorts!

Can you tell which are handmade and which are from the store?

Shorts! Lots.

Stash khaki fabric used to mock up a Christmas outfit. Liked them so much, I yanked the turquoise basting and restitched for real.

Camouflage cotton cut from an old skirt of mine that’s now too short.

Denim skulls also cut from a skirt from the same wonderful pattern, so also too short. The denim was tricky – I ran out of fabric so had to craft a waistband from denim scraps lined with light black cotton. But it worked.

Not pictured: Navy terry scraps from a nephew’s baby romper. These have a slightly wider waistband  — I didn’t fold the hem under inside but instead zig zagged it down to reduce some of the bulk of the fabric. The knit won’t unravel.

All have grosgrain tags stitched into the back of the waistband so it’s easy to tell back from front.
