in 1980s,Pants / Trousers

I’ve actually made these before (Here’s the We Sew Retro link!), but I wanted them in a nice neutral khaki fabric. No changes to the pattern other than what I previously did for the red ones. This sewed up pretty quick! And I love my new shorts, so yay :D

Psst – I also made the stripey shirt, it’s a Renfrew!

The pockets have polka dots :)

I know, I need to push the hooks over closer to the edge so the waistband doesn’t flip open like that.

I’m in love with the shirt. I love a stripey shirt! Perfectly fitted! A scoop neck! Awesome!

I need to know something, do you ever sleep because you must be constantly making outfits round the clock – all of which are really cute!
