Thanks everyone! The pattern says the upper waistband of shorts should fall 3/4 inch below the natural waist. I have an 11" rise and they fall 3 inches below my natural waist. I decided to make them as-is for a lower rise. It worked.

Love the shorts!! They really look fantastic. Like maybe the shorts I have been waiting for;).

What a great looking pair of shorts! Your top stitching is flawless, and I love how you added the pockets. I was worried the waist was pretty low, but it doesn't look too bad. Do you like where the waist sits? I plan to make this pattern soon, what a timely review. Thanks!

Really excellent shorts. The details are perfect, and well-sewn too.
