Silver Spring, U...
I made these out of some fabric I got in a lot from ebay. They were surprisingly really quick, only took a couple hours. They were my first pair of shorts to make and my third project overall. I did not use a pattern, I just used a random pair of shorts to trace the outline and then I added a bunch at the top for the high waist and some at the bottom. They came out a liitle shorter than I thought so I just didn’t hem the bottom, though I think I will have to soon! I made these for fourth of July, I guess the colors somewhat match the occasion.
Not sure, but its a bit stretchy, only on the bias I guess?? I’m still learning sewing terms lol
