I recently made a pair of shorts using this pattern.
I used a red twill and my own handmade seam tape. I love them and can't wait for it to get a bit warmer but I am surprised how short they are considering the pattern is from the very early 60s. Usually I end up shortening the length of the legs in vintage shorts but this time I actually wanted to add an inch.
Handmade seam tape at the hem.
By the way, my sailors stripe top blogged about here was also made using the same pattern.
