Lincoln, Nebrask...






I needed some compressions for soccer, but i wasn’t about to pay 25 bucks at Scheels! I made these for about 3 dollars! Fabric from Hancock, pattern from a kwiksew book, mid-rise short spandex. They fit great and don’t ride up! :) Good for volleyball also!
Comment if you want the pattern!

    Hi! My daughter and I are trying to make some shorts for her and I’m not having a lot of luck with using an old pair of shorts for a pattern. Can you send your pattern to me? Yours look great in the photo! Thank you!
