Green Fabric Green Shorts

My friend and I went looking for a mug tree at lunchtime today and tried the op shop. We didnt find any mug tree instead I found this green fabric. About 5 metres of 100% cotton with a width of 120cms. for $7.00. The fabric was thick enough to make into pairs of shorts so I bought it. My friend commented that it would look like the boys were in uniform if I am able to make about a dozen pairs from the material. And I said it was ok all I needed were white T-shirts to go with it. LOL! But I really thought it was a good buy.

When I came home I could not stay away from my sewing machine so I made the first pair out of the fabric. A size 6 since this is the only shorts pattern I have. I think it is time to go out and search for a larger pattern.

Here is the green fabric -
and here is the first pair of shorts I made tonight out of the green material -
I think whoever is going to wear this green pair of shorts would look good on it especially if it comes with a white Tshirt. :-)

  1. Very good buy indeed. Butterick Pattern B5153 comes in sizes 3-4, 5-6, 7-8, 10-12 and 14-16. Simplicity Pattern 9958 comes in sizes XS, S, M, L and XL but they are more of a boxer shorts style.
