days three, four and five were spent making these shorts.
they're style S from happy homemade vol. 5
i love the finish you get from japanese sewing books, the top stitching down the side seam and the centre seam give it a really nice finish, and i'll definitely be utilising that in other garments.
and made the 110cm for my four and a half year old and they're a perfect fit.
the fabric is some essex yarn dyed linen (maybe in flax?)
they would probably benefit from a good iron - but the linen is quite creas-y so why bother!
