Description

as part of my summer sewing goal, I wanted to make a few pairs of shorts based off my favorite RTW pair. I made a bunch of measurements and drafted my own pattern.

This is the wearable muslin I made, compared to the original shorts. I changed the back pockets a little, and eliminated the belt loops. It turned exactly how I wanted, except that I made the waistband a smidgen too big (I’ve been wearing them anyway).

With my drafted pattern validated, the next pairs should be pretty quick to crank out.

    Your drafted pair is so much more amazing than the ready to wear. Bravo!
