I am actually quite happy with my efforts. They are not actually as tight as they look in the photos. I was going for a pair of baggy shorts, but as my kids are quite little (Mitch is a size 2 in shorts and 3 in pants and he is 5yo), baggy ended up looking just too big. So I actually had to bring in the pattern by 2cm, and then let it flair out after the bottom back the the original size. The front pockets are a but of a stuff up, but next time I make them I will be sure to fix that up. DH would like me to put a zip in but I think they look find without the zip just with the elastic waist.
Now I need to get sewing on Mitchells chair bag that will be in the same flames fabric and black. Not sure if I should do the whole front pocket in the flames or just applique his name WDYT?
