I just saw this photo on pinterest and immediately wanted to have sweatpants shorts. I made them slightly too tight but they still fit well.
For the pattern, I used the Spandex athletic shorts pattern by Danii97 as a base. I removed 1.5 inch from the ‘waist lenght’ and added about 2 inches for the ‘legs’ lenght so the waist is less high but the shorts are longer.
I also put two eyelets on the front of the waistband in order to put some kind of lace/shoestring.
