I made these shorts based of this free pattern http://imaginegnats.com/shorts-on-the-line-by-owly-baby. It’s the third pair I’ve made and I feel like I’ve got them fitting reasonably good. The back pockets are drafted from a pair of my RTW pants. More on my blog:
The fabric is actually something I got at the Goodwill and was a 3xl mini skirt. It was around $3 and was a ton of material. I used the waist band (made smaller) and the zipper from the original skirt but just cut out the rest of my pattern pieces like normal. I wish I would have taken a picture of what it looked like before.
