What was your inspiration?
These are so comfortable, you can wear them all day long.
What are you most proud of?
I made these for my size but the waistband was too loose. I remedied this by folding them in half at the waistband and sewing them from the bottom edge of the inside waistband seam, in a diagonal line to one inch at the top. This removed 2 inches from the width at the top. I trimmed this seam down and they were a much better fit.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Make a smaller waistband than your waist measurement.
