Step 6: Step 6: The paper doll shorts
Step 7: Step 7: Elastic and voila
Step 8: Step 8: Here we are!
Some of us ladies may have extra thickness in the thighs (ahem) so to make the shorts roomier in that area, before I sewed the crotch haves together, I added an extra panel of fabric and sewed it between the "v" area. Yay, comfort. Good night.
