Managed to get 4 bags out of these shorts, made a pocket on 2 of them as this was the lower leg, got the fancy stitching going on the sewing machine.
These 2 are the top and already had nice pockets with flaps.
And these were the lower legs, so were a bit short. I made them bigger with the contrasting fabric, with interfacing included. I added new pockets to the front with some off cuts. I unpicked every scrap, nothing was wasted! The legs had the stitching on the cuffs, so one I did one way and the other just stitched on the outside. what do you think?
