The other day while looking through my favorite blogs I saw this post on Darling Dexter and felt inspired to make a similar pair of shorts. I got straight to work and made my own pair of shorts in one evening. I started with BurdaStyle's Ruby shorts pattern as a base. I altered the front quite a bit, added pockets, used an invisible zip on the side, and added a buttoned flap on the waistband to cover the top of the zipper. The materials were all purchased secondhand, excluding the invisible zipper.
