green shorts!

I found this great green fabric on the clearance rack at Joanns and decided it would be perfect for shorts.  It had a bit of stretch, but was heavy enough to have some structure.

I used Simplicity 1783 as a basic start.  I shortened the pants and added pockets to the front and back.  I also dropped the waist 2 inches.  It certainly was an adventure to sew, with lots and lots of seam ripping.  They ended up way to big so I had to take the pockets off and cut off 2 inches from the front.  Then the waist was too big in the back so more seam ripping. 

I love how they turned out.  Super comfy and such a fun green.
