Just reporting my stash busting so far this September-I sewed 2 pairs of board shorts in the last 3 evenings and used 4 1/4yards total. Here are the uninspired photos, but I did press them! :-)
The top pair are sewed in a lovely linen, and the coin pocket is a scrap from my patio dress. The bottom pair are grape colored denim. I love this pattern S3839 OOP and will be posting a review of it on PatternReview. One of my tripping points in sewing is the waistband...I worked very hard to make these as professional as possible. I'm proud of the work, and these everyday pants will see a lot of wear in the next year.
