Thanks heaps, I want to make these shorts too. After reading your review and seeing your pics, I have hopes that I will make a great pair myself!

Sue - I just read your comments in the msg board about fit and came to look at your review. I have a favourite McCalls 3/4 pant that if I work by measurements I have to make a 20. I'm currently wearing those pants in the size 16 I cut a few years ago and am back to wearing. They aren't skin tight either. What I've done now is made a copy of a favourite pant using tape and then I compare it to the pattern before I trace off the one I want. It's very interesting because usually the pants patterns seem to be over generous in sizing. I really like your shorts - they look very professional.

Wow, that is a lot of ease! Shorts turned out great, though, well done!
