..or anything with legs and without elastic waistband for that matter!
I really wanted to sew low waist shorts out of some stripy fabric I had in stash, but since I never did that before this one actually started as a muslin for that project! I had this gray cotton as a leftover from my earlier project (boys vest? girls vest!), and as there was less than a 1m of it I thought that in the worse case it wouldn’t be such a terrible waste.
In the end, after finishing them I couldn’t force myself to sew the one I planned in the first time! Couldn’t find any suitable pattern so I took some basic trousers pattern and modified it. There was so many details I wanted to add but I run out of fabric (think this was the first time that I used every inch of material), but I saved all those ideas for my next shorts!
I think they turned out great for a first try! Fit is ok, though I couldn’t decide about a length. Next one will be shorter!
cotton, and for inner side of pockets and waistband I used some green/blue lining (also a leftover from my vest)
