|This is my inspiration piece. I am starting simple, skipping the ruffles and|
embroidery. Maybe after I confirm that my pattern is viable I may try something
a little more involved like pockets or some sort of ornamentation.
|First I'll have to make my pattern. Stretch out the waistband to get an accurate|
line at the top. Don't forget to add your seam allowances and mark your fold.
|Pin to your fabric and cut. I doubled it so I would only have to pin/cut once.|
|I used my serger to finish the edges at the legs and then sewed the inseam.|
Turning the legs right-side out, I sewed the two legs together. Once the pieces
were together, I serged around the waist line to finish those edges.
|This pair of shorts is going to have an elastic waistband, so I turned down|
the top edge to make a channel wide enough to slip my elastic through.
|The only thing left to do was hem the legs. This is what my shorts looked like|
|Here is the finished product.|
