Its called the Elephant Shorts because I had to make a pair of shorts to fit my post-preggy elephant thighs. It is my first attempt making one. It took forever because I was unpicking most of the time. :P I traced the pattern from an existing pair of shorts, then made the adjustment. There ’s A LOT of room for improvement, but I am kinda pleased with it being the first attempt.
On hindsight, I should have used a slightly thicker and firmer fabric which would have been easier for a novice like me.
