What a timely review! I plan to make myself shorts with this pattern very soon. Yours are the exact fit I'm looking for.

I love the front of these on you, perfect fit. For the back waistband "Threads" as a great technique that I think would work perfect on just the back of the shorts waistband: I really think the fabric is cute too!

First I adore the fabric you chose. Thank you for showing how you attempted to alter them and explaining the fitting issues.

These look great. I love the pattern, too. I think it's been a common complaint about the depth of the crotch. My problem was that the short shorts were a tad too short and the pockets showed past hem when I sat down. Your shorts look very trendy in a vintage sort of way ;)
