In fact, when the husband found them in the wash, he was a little confused as to why I would have bought them.
But I had the idea that they could be flattering-- with just a few fixes.
First I hemmed them, took in the sides and then took in the inseam.
I used the fabric from the hem for a tie to cover the elastic back waist band.
my newest pair of shorts!
the husband still isn't the biggest fan. His words: "those shorts look very in." ;)
