So wanted to make some shorts. Jean fabric seemed fitting, especially since I had bought some light colored denim last year since it was so cheap. I got to home with my denim and realized that light colors make my butt look HUGE. It isn't the smallest in any case (and I'm trying to lose the last few pounds that are my goal and MAN are they stuck!!) and light colors just make it look BAD. My ass usually looks fab, btw. I have no issues with that. I have issues with using wrong colors Wink

I also made a home studio upstairs. I live in a detatched house all by myself with my dog, so I have my own sewing room and now I have a studio - not usable during the coldest winter on the count of there being no insulation. Sad I also don't like the way the very thin white fabric in the background makes the background look multicolored. I want a white BG, dang it!! I used photoshop and am not a very fluent photoshopper, so that's why the crummy pics.

The embroidery on the back pockets is from UT, of course. http://www.urbanthreads.com/products.aspx?productid=UT1861

I used the same pattern that I've used for (almost?) all the pants I've posted on this forum. It's my favorite!

OH AND!! I usually stitch the pants together and THEN do the fron zipper. This time I first sew the small patch of fabric underneath the zipper, just the front pieces together, then I added the zipper. After that I sewed the back seam together on the back pieces. Then the seams that are inside your legs and THEN the sideseams! It was weird since I usually start with the side seams, but it was much easier to sew the zipper on on the count of there not being so much fabric to work around. I urge you to try it if you haven't! I'm going to try it a few times more atleast. Will have to see if it really does give better results or if this was just a first timer fluke!


AND THEN THE PICTURES... Of which there are TWO. Sorry!

I like 'em!  And I don't think your butt looks too big.  Though, I prefer women-shapes to have a butt myself.  Men-shapes too.  No-butts just creep me out a little >.>

I think the shorts look great! If you still aren't sure about the light fabric, maybe you could dye them.

cute!  I love that you add the embroidery on the pockets!

I have always sewn the zipper in pants first...it is way easier to sew a zipper when it is "flat"...

I also love the belt loop you did in back...nice detail!

Thank you  for the positive feedback, and special thanks to alwaysinmyroom for noticing my details <3 The belt loops in the back are also asymmetrical, that doesn't show off well in the pic.

I think the light fabric is cool in such a small amount. So will not be dyeing Smiley
