With your adjustments, they look really nice on you.

Well done! Great save. I think the design elements raise the style bar on the shorts. I've noticed pricey shirts etc often use a contrastiing print fabric for facing so your shorts are very chic.

ditto, and thanks for the helpful review and blog post. Judging by your main photo, I would have jumped on the pattern, but not so much now.

You ended up with a great looking pair of shorts, despite the mediocre pattern! Good for you for persevering...
