Kwik Sew 3398 – Boys Shorts

After watching an episode of The Great British Sewing Bee about the Make-do-and-mend period of WW2, I decided to have a go at sewing a pair of play shorts using 2 x tea towels. That’s right. Tea towels and it worked. The only down side is that you generally have to pattern match which I didn’t do on my first go.

Took 2 hrs from start to finish including copying the pattern.

I had never sewn in a fly before. Turned out it wasn’t as tricky as I thought it would be.

The blue shorts are store bought and I used them to recreate the same type of waist band.
