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