Leightweight Denim Shorts for Joe, Part 2

The denim shorts are coming together.    I decided to add a little color to the inside of the fly by using some striped material left over from my mod shorts.

Instructions had me hand baste the stitching line so I could sew it later.
I ended up removing the basting and just following the contour of the fly with the machine.

The Brother was used for its zipper foot.  And some people
wonder why I need more than one machine.
I think my brain-fog was kicking in due to the heat.  It took me a couple days to do this.  But what else to do on 105 degree day except sewing in an air-conditioned house?

Thanks for stopping.


  1. I love the stripy detail in the zipper!

    I also love the thought of air conditioning. :-P

  2. I am anxiously awaiting. The denim is lightweight and soft.

    1. These are the most comfortable. Shorts ever!
      Could wear them every day
