I did it!! I really really did it!! woo!!
They are a little long and and for some reason in the back they are lower than the front * so my undies show when i sit* so i'll just wear a longer shirt with these.
No I don't really care for the fabric..But it was my scrap.
I made a pattern out of a pair of shorts and newspaper..
I think I'm ready to make a shorter pair!!
good job, cherries! unfortunately, i think the problem with them being lower in the back then in the front is related to a larger than average sized derierre for the particular size you wear. at least, that is what i suspect for when it happens to me.
however, you can fix it in future projects using this pattern by lengthening the center back seam. hope that helps! i should make some new shorts too!
