so I made these shorts yesterday night…. haha
the pattern and design was made from scratch and the fabric was from my mom
it’s really easy to make and the waistband is obviously elastic.. I tend to do well with elastic haha
I find that it’s a staple piece to have in your wardrobe.. elastic waist shorts

and they’re super cute

    great idea, never have thought of using elastic. They don’t look difficult to make so a perfect project for a novice like me!!!!!!!!

    Omg I’ve been planning to make these exact same type of shorts except black fabric with thicker elastic. I didn’t know how they would turn out but now I know theyll turn out good. Super cute! Nice job chica!
