My older brother asked me to make him some shorts, so we went out and got a pattern and some fabric.  I measured around his waist and started slicing and dicing.  Couple days later when the shorts were finished and he tried them on, we learned a very important lesson in sewing -> Adjust measurements and check fit, people!

The pants fit around his waist alright.... but I guess my brother's butt is larger than the average man... when he stepped out to show me the shorts, I almost started crying because they were so tight around his booty... hehehehe!  Shocked  Grin

Since we're basically the same size, I just took them back and I told him I would make them bigger next time..... so check out my new shorts!



By the way, I used Simplicity pattern 9469... it was lightweight easy to follow... had a couple snags though, but it turned out okay (for me, anyways)  Grin

Those look incredibly comfy. Good job!

Better luck next time, for your brothers booty.

 Cheesy  Sewing woes!  Better than the time my mother (definitely not a pattern follower) tried to make my cousin and me pants...she sewed the waist up as the legs and the legs as the waist...it looked like some huge elf pants gone wrong (and the pockets ended up at the feet!).  lol.  Better luck next time!
