I used an old sewing pattern and remnant fabric I’d gotten from my grandma to make these shorts. The shorts have four pleats in the front and two in the back. They’re a little hard to pull up, but fit great once I get them up. If I make this pattern again I may leave off the pleats. Read more about the project on my blog here.
