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!

    I made a pair of these for my daughter who plays volleyball and this pattern is AMAZING!!! The fit is great and the pattern is so easy to make. I bought sports spandex on sale and made her several pairs for what it would have cost me for just 1. She’s gotten a lot taller(15 @ 5’10) so I wish they were a little longer. If someone can tell me how to lengthen them I would greatly appreciate it.

      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!
