Shorts for me! ~ New Look 6100

Because the deadline for the Shorts on a Line challenge is tomorrow.... I decided yesterday to get started on the shorts for me I've been wanting to make forever.

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.
