I admitted my failure to stiffen the pocket flaps on my husband’s shorts, as I didn’t want to iron them, (see July 6, 2012).
Before we left for vacation, my husband came up with a better solution…remove the flaps. He said they just got in the way.
I removed them with a seam ripper, carefully taking out the stitches. I top-stitched the two pieces together that had the flaps sewn in between them. I even removed the flaps on his new shorts.
