Description

Inexpensive pillowcases and sheets from the op-shops are perfect for testing out new techniques, especially if it’s one you think you may muck up. The fly front zipper adds a slightly more professional look to handmade shorts.

The self-drafted pattern was inspired by a couple of other shorts and a pair of jeans I like wearing. I wanted something slightly highwaisted so others would be spared the sight of my bum when I bent over, and it had to be comfortable without being baggy. Darts were added to give some shaping, and I finished the waist with a facing for a sleeker look.

They are immensely comfortable and I can spend all day in them, but they look structured enough that others don’t think I’m wearing my PJs in public.
