Finished.... and very happy with the results. They're still a bit too roomy, but I don't like clothes that are too tight. I made them THREE sizes too big... then I undid the waistband and took them in... better to take them in, than to make them too small, and have to buy all new material and make them ove... wait a minute. That's exactly what I had to do!
I have to have my fiancé take a picture of me from a distance so the hem can be seen. I did the magic hem. Very happy with my first pair of pants/shorts.
