Let me introduce the Alpine shorts by Terra's Treasures. Here is the pattern description:
The Alpine Trousers are a structured well fitting pant. They feature a flat front with elastic back waistband, side and back pockets and optional faux fly. Also comes in Shorts length.
The main fabric is from my stash, a drill originally from Spotlight, with the contrast fabric from a previous project scraps. This fabric was gifted to me by a friend quite a few years ago (yes I keep fabric for a while, including scraps).
The shorts were an easy sew. Mr K's verdict are that these are comfy. My only tip is to check the pattern and instructions before sewing the faux fly version. These are the flat front version in size 10 (Mr K is aged nine and these have some room to grow).
