1) First I traced around one of Max's shirts. I traced it onto some paper that's meant for covering up paintings or drawings done with charcoal and/or pencil in art to protect them. But I also use it for patterns and all kinds of things. It comes in BIG rolls at art supply stores. I laid the pattern on top of the shirt so that I could use the existing neck hole and shoulder seams.
Here are the shorts I made for him out of the pant legs of the before mentioned old pair of pants. I just used the same pattern I did for the Elastic band shorts.
Hope he likes it!
