One of the first garments that I made for the PR Wardrobe Contest was a pair of wool shorts. My plan was to wear these with tights during the transition from winter to spring. I liked the color and the fabric weight, but the fit was not great. They were a bit too baggy and the crotch was way too low.

So I took the waistband off, took the side seams in, and raised the crotch. Unfortunately in doing all of this, I lost the side pockets and made the shorts a bit too tight.

See, they’re too tight. Also the zipper is black and does not blend in. It was driving me nuts, so I made a second pair. Now the fit is good, the zipper is gray, and I am a happy woman.
