A zip fly isn’t required for most pants, but it is a detail that makes a pair of fitted (not elastic waist) pants look more like the kind of pants you find in a store. Shauna from Shwin & Shwin shows how you can put one in any pair of pants (or shorts) that you make. I’m loving the contrast of the pink zipper on the polka dotted pants in her example! Go to her tutorial.
