These are super easy shorts. I made this pattern by tracing a pair of shorts that I already had. The pattern is easy to adjust as I’m not very good with measuring so I tend to make a few adjustments myself.
(these shorts are not yet complete, they are missing an elastic band but this is the gist of them…)
Pattern and instructions coming soon
Stretchy or loose fabrics work best with this pattern especially if you make them with an elastic band, but I have made some out of woven fabric and they turned out just fine, really cute too!
