They don't hang the way I want them to and I don't like the way they wrinkle. I also probably should have made the legs a little wider and lengthened the crotch for the look I was going for.
I do think this pattern has potential. I like the tie, the pockets and even the pleats. If I find some challis in a print that speaks to me, I may sew these up again with a few tweaks.
If high school me knew I was sewing up shorts with a mid rise, pleats and elastic waist, she would be mortified. I would tell her to treat herself better by not wearing so many polyester shirts.
