I decided to make these shorts because I happened to have about a yard of Flannel left over from backing my owl quilt, and I really wanted a cozy pair of shorts for sleeping. It's been 90+ degrees here for the past week, so flannel really isn't the best fabric to be using, but oh well.
I really don't have many notes to make about this pattern, it was very good, but I didn't follow it exactly. For example, I didn't leave the front flap open, you know, just because. I also sewed some of the seams in a slightly different order than they directed in the book, and this didn't cause any problems. Finally, I used a different size elastic.
Mostly, I was trying to be thrifty and use the fabric that I already had on hand. I love them.
