It seems that you can go happily sewing for 7 years, make most of your own wardrobe, including custom bras, and a pair of men’s shorts can knock all the confidence out of you!
It seems that the welt pocket was like origami to me.
The fly front zipper needed 10 seam ripping sessions.
The crotch seam looked like uncomfortable, even as I was pinning it.
The waist front did not match the back waist.
This is not the fault of the pattern maker–just one of those crazy challenges that just did not fit my brain waves.
