Upcycled Plaid Shorts

Alright, I’m getting back on track after a few frustrating days of sewing mistakes and mishaps.

These shorts are upcycled from an old button-up shirt of my dad’s that my mom brought me one day (thanks, Mom!).  The shirt was really thin, so they’re lined with an old white T-shirt.

I made these flat-front, like these pants, and they are definitely my new favorite way to make pants.  And for my skinny little bean pole here, the little bit of elastic in the back of the waistband works great.  The plaid even *almost* lines up.

And despite my super crabby reluctant model, he refuses to take the shorts off.  Even though today it is not even close to shorts weather.  I don’t blame him, they are pretty fantastic looking on him.
