FO: Red Shorts Simplicity 2258

As we reach the end of August, I have one last summer make to share.  After making my red skinnies, I had just enough red denim left to make a second pair of Simplicity 2258 shorts from Phillippa's giveaway pattern.  

 I had liked my blue shorts and kept wearing them, so a second pair seemed a good way to use up the last bits of the red denim.  I used some stash floral cotton to make the pockets as I couldn't manage to squeeze pocket lining from the fabric.

I used the same red buttons that I used on my blue shorts. I really like the tab and button.  It's the little details that make me like a piece of clothing.

I have been wearing these shorts a lot.

They are great holiday wear, so a big thank you again to Phillippa.

    1. Thank you :) I am sad it's getting to the end of summer and I will have to stop wearing them soon.

  3. Yay I am so glad you have made good use of the pattern! Those buttons are really cute. We are forecast at least another week of sunshine so fingers crossed for a little more wear...

  4. Ah, red shorts, lovely! I really like the button tab!
