Using the same pattern made here I made new shorts, with a small red and white plaid cotton fabric. One of the differences from the last one was that I did not made flat felt seams, instead I finished the seams with a small zig zag stitch. And I cut only two pieces instead of four, i.e. I cut the front and back pieces together joined by what would be the side seam.
It was very fast to sew. I have to get more fabric later, because this is a piece I wear a lot. Here are some pictures:
|Simple shorts, pattern made following the Perfect-Fit Sleep Shorts, from the One Yard Wonder book.|
|Elastic wait band. Sew two stitch lines so the elastic won't roll.|
|Pocket on the back. It serves also to identify the back of the piece, as I don't use labels...|
