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.
