Melissa from Blank Slate Patterns and Melly Sews shows how you can draft a pattern to make a pair of loose fitting men’s shorts. You can get the measurements you need from a pair of pants that fit. Once you have the measurements, she shows how to draw the pattern and how to sew the pieces together to make a pair of comfy shorts. You can also use this method to make loose fitting kids’s shorts or women’s shorts. Get the tutorial at Melly Sews.
