In 2017 I attempted to make myself some new shorts for sleeping in. But when I added the waist band it kinda went wrong and I ended up giving up.
Last year when it was so hot all summer I really needed to try this project again, but because I wasn't sure how to take it forward I kept putting it off and putting it off, until it was getting cold again and there wasn't any point.
I had Friday off work this week and had been planing to make myself a sweatshirt, having found some lovely material, but it didn't really seem appropriate in a heat wave, so I dug out the pattern for the shorts I made last time and had a think about how to improve them.
Once I got started it really wasn't that hard. And I made sure to write everything I did down, so I can easily make them again (if they turned out OK).
I'm not sure about the material, it was in a sale somewhere so cheap but not that soft. I'm hoping wearing and washing will sort that out, but now I have a pattern that works I don't mind spending a bit more on nice material.
And I have a few ideas on how to tweek the patter to make it even better, but all in all I'm chuffed and relieved to finally have finished this project!
I just have to try sleeping in them to see if they really work.
