Once Mark retired he began to hanker after some different sorts of clothes, and his first request was for some shorts. He is wearing the first pair I made him with his new sports shirt.
These shorts are made from some really nice fabric that I had in my stash, and it was only after I began to make them that I realised that the fabric was a very fine wool. Apparently, though, they are very cool to wear, so that was a bit of a relief.
You can check out the shorts in my previous post, but I’ve also made him a pair of casual trousers using the same pattern, and using some fabric that I bought from Textile Traders at some point.
This pattern is Kwik Sew 4045, and it is a brilliant pattern. I have made it several times before, and this time I wanted to do welt pockets on the back, but he prefers patch pockets – go figure! I shall make another pair at some point and just do the welt pockets without telling him.
I’ve now made him another couple of pairs which I’m sure will appear in a photo or two teamed with a new shirt (the order is already in for another shirt!), and in the meantime this shirt is in constant rotation between being worn and being laundered.
