I've been struggling for so long to find a good pattern for shorts that can be worn with tights, leggings, or without. That look good with a shirt tucked in and look good with a tunic.

So I made it up!: )

Comments appreciated. Very much so.

Awesome. They almost remind me of an art apron that you'd wear as a kid.
