This is a white, medium weight, linen pair of shorts pants, sewn with 3-ply white linen thread. Typically, I condition the thread with bees wax I forgot my bees wax while on the road trip. You can sew without it, and I did, however two things to note are that the thread/floss fray more quickly, so you need to use shorter pieces and there is more friction and the thread knots and catches more.
This pattern is very odd shaped and every time I look at it, it hurts my brain. I was given a pair of completed pants and told to use them as a pattern. The pattern only has three pieces, two of which are doubled. In general, the pattern is very wasteful of fabric; however I am told the comfort of the completed pair of pants is high.
While I did not get a picture of the whole completed short pants I did remember to grab a picture while I was ironing. If you look at the picture you can see the bias of the fabric when joined together. I also needed to add a piece of fabric in because I mismeasured the pattern. You heard me say it. Measure twice, cut once.
Over all they turned out nicely and the recipient liked them. Listen friends… Measure twice, but cut once.
