Cargo shorts - Tie Dye Diva

I am still on the path of sewing up shorts for Mr K. I switched patterns to use the Tie Dye Diva's Cargo Shorts Patterns. This is a size eight, and sadly the maximum size for this pattern so this will be one of the last pairs for Mr K. I have made these shorts before, back in about 2003.

It is a very easy sew with a faux fly and optional cargo pockets. Instead of cargo pockets, I added my own version of back pockets with topstitching.

Mr K loves the fit and the fabric. For a moment, I was a bit worried about the print (perhaps a bit young?) but he says that he loves elephants, and it is even better that they are eating apples!. Mr K does love his fruit!

The fabric is drill from the bargain bin in Spotlight. I don't have high hopes for fabric longevity but hopefully it will get Mr K through round the house wear for the year.
