Jebediah- Why he wears purple

The massive love for Thread theories Jebediah pants is astounding - however not surprising, considering how easy the pattern is and how professional the finish is.
I have made a number of shorts for the boy- however they aren't really what you would wear out of the house!
I wanted to test the Jebediah pattern with shorts first - before making some work trousers - enter the purple fabric.
This beautiful purple linen was on sale ( I think from the Fabric Store?) yonks ago! Its been sitting in my stash for ages, as it really is quite bright, and wouldn't resolve itself in my mind into any clothes for me!
But I had just enough for shorts! (He likes short shorts - I even cut off another 5 inches before I hemmed them!)
Woo - it all fitted!
They were so easy to make - I started one afternoon and had them finished after 5 hrs! I just could't put them down. As these were only a practice lot - I didnt do all of the seam binding as I still wasnt sure how much I would have to alter them.  Not much as it turns out, for the full length I will need to add some cm's to the thigh due to his cycling muscles :)
I love the binding!
When they were constructed the purple wasn't so overwhelming - I would be tempted to "borrow" them if they fitted me!
Doggies are interested!

Yes - they are a bit crushed!
Love the back yoke seam binding
and the pocket detailing!

Now onto the trousers!
