How to make a pair of Shorts or Pants, for any age


Sewing a pair of shorts or pants is easy! I made my first pair when I was 10 years old, and I’ve never stopped—now there are summer shorts for my kids, pajama shorts for bedtime, running shorts….there are so many options! Today we’re going to start with the basics. I’ll show you how to make a simple pair of shorts with an elastic waistband. And they’re gonna look awesome. Come sew with me!
