I just couldn't manage doing anything on Day 3, so I worked for longer on Day 4 to finish these shorts for Julian. They have a placket in the front like Sailor pants - this will be more obvious when I add the buttons.
This is the Ottobre (03/2012) photo of the shorts:
I have been sewing for more than 25 years (!!) and I have never sewn a waist band or placket like this. I am LOVING Ottobre magazine. I have already used the way they suggest to insert the elastic into waist bands on a pair of trousers and a top (Join the elastic and fit it inside the foldover that will be the waistband and then use a zipper foot to sew the casing - I hope that makes sense!).
