Labor Day Shorts

Finished up these retro, high-waisted shorts just in time for the long weekend.

Fabric
Remnants from the vintage fabric that my mom used to make Fourth of July porch cushions

Pattern
5633 Simplicity Pattern from 1973

This is the first pair of shorts I’ve made, and I’m still figuring out the whole proper zipper insertion thing. I’ll be honest—I ended up adding some extra snaps to help ensure that the front fit properly and laid flat. I think overall, not too bad though.

Kind of like Gidget or Marcia Brady.
