Kwik Sew 4045 Shorts

I was trying to decide what my next project would be when I went to the local thrift store and found 4 yards of red denim fabric for $2.99.   Automatically I thought of shorts to wear around the house, and Kwik Sew 4045.  I hadn't used this pattern before, but with such reasonably priced material, I decided to move ahead without a muslin in medium.

Once that was decided I needed to choose which heavy duty sewing machine to use.  Since I used a 1980s Viking for my last project, I thought a 1970s Viking would be appropriate.  Therefore, my Viking 6440 would do nicely.

I also decided to serge the seams with my Brother home lock.

The shorts turned out fitting perfect.  Now I know Kwik Sew 4045 is sized appropriately.

Thanks for stopping.
