Use a sharp fabric pin to gently poke holes through every seam and garment edge of the shorts (don’t forget to poke a ‘seam’ at the lower edge of the elastic where it connects to the fabric of the shorts). You want to make sure the pin goes through the fabric and into the paper below. These will become your garment outlines (seam and hem allowances to be added later). You can poke through hemlines at this point if you want.
