What materials did you use? Cotton interlock jersey

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.

I just made a pair of the pants and found i had to size down in every area. I think the stretchiness of the fabric really matters. The fabric I chose for my shorts were perfect.

I know, it's strange, I was sewing a small for these and still had to reduce the waistband.

I had to reduce the waistband too. Very great look

Thank you. I think it is because it doesn't have elastic, you have to make it tight to stay up!
