Hilarious — way to go — awesome shorts!!! I have lost weight, plus my old shorts are literally falling apart after 20 years of wear and tear , and I just can't afford new clothes right now. You can use knit or woven fabric — these are loose fit, so either will work. Turn the fabric over so that the stitched seams sit in the center front and center back of the fabric. Divide the band into a few other equally spaced points along the lining, pinning it to the fabric in another eight to ten places.
Either would fit the ticket for my male model. My brain was getting pretty obnoxious with myself. Look great on your guy. This is a total win. I hope he was smiling! Oh my, how handsome those boxers are. I know my hubbs would wear these! I always buy him Jockey, but you know even brands are inconsistent and it can make a man crazy. I know I am making these. Thank you for the pattern. You are a doll. This comment makes me so happy! I hope you share what you make….
Great tutorial — BUT- why a faux fly? I made a pair of these once and got kickback from the guy because there was no opening in the front. Maybe redesigning the pattern slightly to allow for this need? Maybe a quick scan of google would bring up one with a real fly?
I made them to fit my husband and he is a M-L, I would say?! If you like loose fitting shorts, you can also use this method to draft a pair for women. To start, get a pair of pants.
These should be pants that fit on their own, not pants that are a few sizes too big or too small and held up with a belt.
Next measure from the corner of the rectangle to the center, and divide that measurement by 4. Measure out from one side of the rectangle that amount. On the other side measure out the amount listed in the image below. Label the front and back of the pattern as shown below. On the front corner, draw a 1 inch line at 45 degrees. On the back corner, draw a line that extends 2 inches at 45 degrees. This is how I use my ruler to create a 45 degree mark. And who said high school geometry would never be useful?
Create a curve that touches your mark for both the front and back. These will be your inseams. Finally, move the bottom of the front inseam line in 1 inch toward center. Move the back inseam line 2 inches in toward center. Cut out two of this pattern, with the fabric folded so you get a right and a left leg.
With the waistband right side out and the shorts right side out, line the waistband up with the top edge of the shorts as shown below, matching the center back seam with the waistband seam. The buttonhole side of the waistband should be against the shorts. Stitch the waistband in place, leaving an opening near the center back to insert the elastic if you look closely you can see it below to the left of the center back seam.
Just like sewing the side seams, be careful to pin the pockets flat and sew through all 4 layers 2 waistband layers, pocket facing and shorts front. Your email address will not be published.
