Kwik Sew 3884 part 2

The instructions for these shorts are a little weird.I am used to sewing each leg, sewing the center seam then the elastic or zipper. But with this pattern the first 2 steps are to sew the zipper and the front pockets. I understand that they will need to be don a bit differently because of the side pockets, but this is the first time I have seen the zipper done first actually written on the paper.

I started by sewing the front seam, basting in the fly area so I can use the same method I did with th skirt.

Then I sewed around the fly. It is kind of hard to see on this fabric.

Then I sewed on the fly shield.

And opened up the basted stitches and the zipper insertion is complete. (at least until I attach the waistband)

When I work on this again I’m going to have to get out both the serger and the sewing machine.
