Taking the shorts from this set, seemed like a good second project, also because my best buddy’s wife asked for some new pj shorts. So I made these, with my buddy helping me.
I made them according to instruction but only stitched the waistline once, so the elastic tape unfortunately slips a bit to the upper edge. My buddy’s wife comforted me ’It’s dark, when I’m sleeping, so nobody will notice.’ (As you can see, when I’m in the picture too, nobody will notice either.) The hem came out a bit short, but that made the shorts a bit more exciting. I know my buddy wouldn’t mind, he like his wifes legs. ;-)
