Just think, your dad probably used to wear these on a regular basis.





'Scuse the belly!





Didnt use a pattern except to remind myself of what the curves should be, crotch-wise.

Lots of cutting and re-doing happened.

The waistband is both backward and the seam is on the wrong side.

Otherwise, I think it looks great. I managed to force myself to topstitch the entire thing.

All in all these took 2 hours but I'm pretty sure I can bang a pair out in about 45 minutes next time.

Haha thanks.

I totally have a photo of my dad in these. They were bright yellow.

Next pair I make, I will take some photos and attempt the crappiest tute ever. They're really easy.
