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!

      can you please revise the instructions, I’m new to sewing, although I’ve sewn some projects here and there, I have the pattern pieces but don’t have a clear idea what I’m cutting or what is going together with what. Matching the lettered darts makes no sense with the pattern, or I’m just not seeing it. Thanks :)

    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!
