Subject: Please help me, as I need fabric recommendations Date: 4/17/13 1:49 PM

This is my first message post EVER on PR. I have ten year old daughters who want me to make the "sports shorts" They do not want long Bball shorts or board shorts. They want mid thigh shorts, made out of polyester fabric, with an elastic waist. Nike makes shorts like this, you get things like this at JC Penney, etc. It looks like the elastic waist somehow gets stitched in rows. I have made jammy shorts with the elastic casing waist, don't know about that multiple row of stitching technique. I saw a nice looking basic pattern, Kwik Sew Girls Shorts/Tops Sz 8-14 #2774 and do you think it would work for what I want? Also, when I go to the fabric store (Joanne or Hancock) what kind of fabric do I look for to make shorts like this?
