MSS Seersucker Shorts

Just a quick post to document my shorts from  my CS instructions using the JHG .

My fabric is a seersucker remnant of indeterminate origin and age i.e I’m not sure where or when i acquired this piece and I’m not sure if it is 100% cotton, a cotton blend or a bunch of polyester.  I do like seersucker for shorts and pants. They look the same all day long.  I especially like cotton seersucker for summer. I think this type of fabric is very cool temperature wise.

No changes to pattern but I did take the time to trace the shorts length.  It’s not all that hard to fold up the leg.  It’s just nice not to have to fuss with the pattern.  I had 1.5 yards of fabric and was able to  cut with the waistband attached. I cut the pockets separately. Not to save fabric but because I like the construction process better.  For this pattern and when using pockets,  I do not serge the side seams together.  I serge finish the front side seam. Then serge the pockets to the side seams and finally cover stitch the pocket bags to the front.  I’ve got this down to a science.  The shorts took less than 2 hours from start to finish and that includes pics for both this post and the JHG post.
