I made these in summer 2010. I wanted something for warm weather my Ken could wear, so I made these shorts.
I was trying to make them look like something you would find in Aeropostale, or Gap, and I’m pretty pleased with the result. I used an old Simplicity pattern for Ken doctor scrubs, (which had an elastic waist) shortened them, and tweaked it so there wouldn’t be elastic in the waist.
