I finished some tiny shorts just in time for wading-in-streams, broken-AC-at-the-gym, 82-degrees-at-8:00-am weather:


These are the Greenstyle Balboa Shorts, which I’ve made before (I used 2 inch elastic this time vs 3 inch). The pattern has front zip double welt pockets but I added a shallow one for my ID to the back too (lose your driver’s license in the lake once [2022] and you’re always going to have a dedicated ID pocket thereafter).


I wore them all weekend long in the heat wave. I even had a full Magnum, P.I. moment at the lake–polo (the Wardrobe By Me mens pattern), tiny shorts, and staring at the water.
