For hips from 32.25-47 inches. I made an XL; my hips are 47 inches. The shorts are close fitting, but I would prefer to have them snugger. I’d say there was a bit of positive ease in them.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Of course; I love Kwik Sew.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I’m hoping to find the perfect (ha, ha) pattern for a chafe guard. My inner thighs rub against each other, and it’s so uncomfortable, I can’t go barelegged. These shorts fit the bill for a knit chafe guard. So I really like the design.
None, really. They weren’t as snug as I wanted, and I used a thicker elastic at the waist than they called for.

Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made:
I shortened the front crotch length 3 inches (usual alteration for me) and lengthened the legs 4 inches. I used a thicker waistband elastic than the pattern called for.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, I plan on making it again. And if you need a chafe guard, I recommend it. I’m not sure that this pattern has wider applications. Maybe for pj’s?
This is an almost perfect chafe guard for me. A couple of sizing tweaks, and I think it will be perfect.
