This probably is the most “luxurious” & comfortable weekend short pants I have ever made for myself – “The Weekender“. It is a fully lined above-the-knee shorts with elastic waistband. The underlining makes the short pants so stable that it prevents the tendency of “seating” through wear and also hiding away underwear lines. I love the structure it gave because I find the “seat” is very “unsightly” and “untidy”, just imagine, excessive crumples across the thigh-line, not mentioning the “view”of underwear lines, yucks!!!!
The master copy of this short pants sewing pattern came from a pair of shorts I bought many years ago, a famous 4 letters brand that starts with a “N”. It was just an ordinary 1 layer short pants without underlining but priced sky-highly (oh yeah, I know I know, I have to pay for the brand name too). One thing I like about it is, it’s comfortable with nice cutting…. at least my tummy looks “flat” when wearing Weekender Short Pants (this is why I bought it in the first place… LOL). With some modifications to add in underlining, hidden pockets and decorative hems, it is now my most favorite weekend shorts of all. I wouldn’t stop at making only one!
