Now I have to practice making button holes with my machine, because I've never done it before. I have 13 buttonholes to make... and I want them to be perfect. The shorts fit! They're a little baggy, but I was really scared because of the first time around. I even had to take the side seams apart and sew them in a bit. They could go in a little bit more, but that would require the removal of the waistbands, and I'm not going to do that.
All I need to do is make the buttonholes, sew the buttons on, put the eyelets on the back panels, and hem them. I'm going to do a mock cuff. Stay tuned.
