Here is a pair of shorts I made for my son. This pattern is from the March 2012 edition of the Ottobre Magazine (Pattern #36). I decided to make them out of ripstop fabric that I found online at Fabric.com. I found the fabric to be a little thin, so I doubled up on it for the knee area. I did not use any interfacing due to material type, which didn't seem to present a problem. The pattern does call for a snap on the waistband; however, I just used a button instead. I have not installed any snaps yet, so that is something I need to learn how to do in the near future. I didn't want to learn with these shorts.
Wearing with his favorite Mythbusters t-shirt.... a perfect color match up.
With these being made of ripstop, they are extremely light weight.
My first welt pocket!! It was not difficult at all.
I love the details on the knee area. These are created by making tucks with bar tacks at the ends.
Pockets on the front.
Overall, I found this pattern to be fun and easy to make! I made these in a size 140 and the fit is perfect! Pattern sized from 128 to 170 cm.
