Holy crap I need about 500 pairs of these!! How did you figure out how to shape the crotch? That's the part that keeps me from making any type of short or pant without a pattern. Awesome job, you rock those!

thanks guys! Smiley

as for the crotch, i just followed the pattern i put a link to. there aren't specific measurements but it shows the shape. i made the little crotch tab in the front about an inch and a half long and two and a half as the "inseam" part. it helps to just visualize the pattern on your body but don't over think it too much.

I love shorts like those. So many athletic shorts are baggy and you can see up them when you sit down, those looks really comfortable and creeper free (aka they are not baggy and you can not see up them, sorry if that sounds weird, but it's a pet peeve).

yeah they're awesome for summer but also perfect for just lounging around in! my favorite studying outfit is actually shorts like these with tube socks.
