I have over exposed these pics so that some of the details can be seen.
Sizing on this pattern: If you are between sizes, go with the larger size.
My hips were a size 6 and my belly was a size 10. I just went with a size 8 with no grading and they were perfect. I know that is weird, but a little tighter in the waist holds them up without elastic.
I changed the sewing order up some. I attached the waist band and facings before I sewed the right side up. It just makes for easy adjusting if needed. The instructions do not call for understitching. Do understitch the pocket lining and the waist band.
I love the inseam pockets on the front (not sides). It is a slimming feature.
This is one of the first shorts patterns that I have enjoyed wearing right away.
