I really like this pattern, it is easy to follow and I didn't run into any big problems. I cut a size 12 because my favorite RTW shorts are size 12. The material I used is a navy floral and is sort of canvas-y. It has zero stretch (that was a bit of a mistake). I cut the shorts out yesterday and put half of them together. This morning I finished them up. I'm really happy with how they turned out too!

I'm pretty proud of myself! As I wear them today, I really like them! I'm thinking some baby blue corduroy ones with navy piping details next.
