The Sew Weekly Sewing Circle

I just completed Grainline's maritime shorts this morning.  Jen posted a great tutorial on her site that shows each step.  The pattern is fantastic--very cute and it goes together well. 

 

The only modification I made was to slide the back pockets in 1/2" closer to the center back seam.  The pattern has them marked about 2 1/2" from the seam line, but that looked like a lot of open real estate back there, and honestly, who needs that much open range?

 

This was my first time with a zipper fly, and I impressed myself.  : )  (although I should probably admit I did one on the muslin, so that helped work out the kinks.) 

 

And I swear I think I am standing weird, because the leg hems are even in real life.
