Left hand blue

You've seen these before here and here. I wanted a navy pair in blue, so this is the blue pair with a new blue top for Blue, blue February.

The pattern changes were refined on the second pair but I wanted to tackle one more issue. Making room for cyclist thighs. Well I think that's the last piece to my shorts puzzle.
The lifesaver is right behind me :)
After checking the notes on the Pants Club, I thought the legs part needed a bit of room. Using the big red book, they call this change 'circumference thigh adjustment'. Who knew?

Here's the back view. Lots of cover stitching used again and my attempt at matching the dots on the back pockets didn't happen. Oh well. These are my final summer shorts.

The top is a replica of the RTW top I wore with these shorts yesterday.

I love those polka dots. The mismatching pockets just make them even more light-hearted and fun.

I, too, have cyclist thighs. So how did you add to the thigh circumference?

Spot on! These are my fave of your short makes.

The shorts look fabulous. I love the polka dots. Lucky you to have thighs, I have matchsticks :-(

Those polka dots are so fun! And the fit is really great on those shorts :)

I love the polka dotted shorts! So much fun! And yay, for getting a great (and final?) fit. I get a lot of amusement from the titles of those fit adjustments. My mom has the red version, but I have a previous edition which uses the term Pendulous. Um....

Aren't polka dots the best:)

I can see you in these shorts too Joy.

I think they're worth the effort, especially in the summer.
