I have mastered elastic waist shorts for my son. I can whip them out in 15 or 20 minutes after cutting the fabric. (I have reduced my fabric cutting time as well – but will address that another time…)
Next on my to do list is to figure out how to add different types of pockets.
I just finished a pair of simple elastic waist shorts using McCall’s pattern 5419, view H. (Same one I used here.) I considered doing a simple flat pocket on the rear of the shorts, but since he wears his shirts long, the pocket wouldn’t be seen. After studying a cargo pocket on one of my husbands shorts, I decided to add a cargo-style pocket, without the top flap to the side of the shorts.
I’ll try to answer them as best as I can!
I will be linking up to many of the parties found here::
