Winter Shorts

I made these shorts from a pattern for pants in the US edition of BurdaStyle magazine. I got the fabric on sale... I think it's some sort of wool blend.


They were super simple to make. One of the reasons I chose this pattern was because it has an invisible side zipper. I just haven't been able to master the art of the fly zip. If you know of any good tutorials, let me know in the comments!


I like that these shorts don't have pockets - just nice, clean lines.


Are you making any shorts this winter?
