Summer Shorts

This week, I’ve been sewing shorts for my boys, using this pattern.

I really like the pattern, although I did change a couple of things. I found that the included 1/4″ seam allowance was hard for me to work with, so after the first pair I cut the others a size bigger and then used a bigger seam allowance.

I also used my own waistband and sewed sports elastic into it.

Oh, and there were no grainlines marked on the shorts front and back, and I think they would have been helpful.

But they turned out to be comfy shorts. Boy approved.



Your Turn

Do you have any fun sewing projects you’re working on this weekend?

    Your shorts are really cute. How busy you are. I do have a sewing project ready to sew. It has been for a couple of months! I hope I get to it pretty soon.
