Today I have a pair of requested shorts. They took a little thought and some care in placement due to the stripes. I hadn't planned on making shorts with stripes, but I think these came out pretty nice. My oldest daughter likes them and she was proud of her choice of colors. The pattern that I used was So Simple A1634
Even though I like the shorts, I didn't have the 3/4 width elastic that the pattern called for. My choice options at the time were 1" and 3/8". I chose the 3/8 width because that would give 3 rows of elastic in the back instead of 2.

I was amazed at how well these shorts fit. There was very little tweeking that had to be done and the total time was about 3 hours. I think these shorts with either size elastic would be a good summer wardrobe plus.
