Barb, they look fantastic! Thanks for the tutorial. I love the welt pockets and your directions make me think I could do it! I haven't been able to make another pair yet, but will watch out for pocket linings. Since my shorts ended up a little too big, maybe that is why the pocket bags stay hidden.

All of your personal touches resulted in a beautiful pair of shorts! I also love the Colette instruction books.

These are great looking shorts. Love the side zip for the flat front.

Wow, you've really raised the bar there with the back pockets. Now I want me some of those. Hope you're enjoying your holiday. Seems perfect!

Very nice! I recently ruined a pair of my favorite shorts on vacation... Sat on a chair that had pine sap on it. I plan to deconstruct those and make a pattern from them this winter.

Great review! I never thought I would be totally impressed by a pair of shorts, but these did it for me. You welt pockets are perfection!

Great job Barb! I've been following your shorts making adventures. You have done a great job and have taught many of us along the way!

Amazing shorts, very RTW. Why do you have to be younger to wear funky, if you find the right fabric go for it. BTW, you look terrific in them.

Great looking shorts. Thanks for the detailed review. I have this pattern and appreciate you taking the time to review it.

They look great! I'm a huge fan of that army-green/olive colour fabric for bottoms. The style really suits you :)

Great review and great looking shorts! I love the welt pockets added to these. I must do this on my next pair.

Wowwwww! You did wonders. They are amazingly great in every detail!

Oh, my goodness! Your shorts far surpass RTW - there are no loose buttons, strings hanging or crooked pockets! Superior job!

Really nice looking shorts!!!! I'm stuck on "Stitch, vertically, the ends of the box from this angle" I'll get was one long jury duty day, I could sew at that lake in a heart beat. Great job putting the tutorial together, I have it saved :)

Great looking shorts, Barb! Very RTW. Thanks for the link to the welt pocket tutorial. You should go the funky fabric. :)
