Carolyn of Perth, Australia made this nifty tutorial on how to sew a French fly, or waist stay by fitting a French fly to a pair of shorts with a waistband. We think that this waistband finish is perfect for always suave pleated and cuffed cream linen slacks – pull up the porch swing, loosen your bow tie, and take a sip of sweetened mint ice tea.
