Here are my bermuda shorts made from Favorite Things "Smarty Pants" pattern. I used a striped seersucker fabric. I love seersucker, but I'm still on the fence of whether or not I like it on me for shorts. However, I already had it in my stash (for a very long time) and it was a good way for me to find out if this pattern would work. The pockets gave me a small challenge initially. I have sewn pockets before but not like these. I had to slow down and really read the instructions, refer to the pattern illustration, and finally just jump in there and sew it together. Normally I can visualize how things go together, but like I said, this style of pocket was all new to me. They turned out beautifully, and once you figure them out, they are quite simple. I wasn't sure about the length of elastic to put in the back waist panel and got it a little too loose, so I need to fix that. This is a great pattern and I will definitely be making more shorts for the summer. I highly recommend.
