great tutorial about making your own shorts pattern based on measurements. The weather has been so hot lately that I have been planning on making myself another pair of pajama shorts. So I pulled out some newspaper for pattern making, and a couple old t-shirts from my fabric bin. I took some measurements and whipped up a pattern on yesterday's newspaper. After seeing the size of the pattern I pulled out two standard t-shirts (think Jerzees, event t-shirts, not baby doll tees) and I happened to have two of the exact same shade of goldenrod yellow. I made a second pair using two red t-shirts and remembered to take some pictures of the process!
made a drawstring out of a strip of the t-shirt, stretched so it rolled over on itself.
