Hey, it's vic!
this is a pair of shorts that was once a size 14, but now it fits me. They are now some of my favorite shorts!
I took them in on the side seams and the back seam, ripping/cutting and then resewing the waistband, and then topstitching it into place. It was a little tricky, but I've done pants and shorts before without that step and the finished thing doesn't look very finished.
One thing I should mention - because I didn't take in the inside seam, the shorts came out kind of baggy with wide legs and a low crotch. If you sew a pair that isn't way too much bigger than you, you won't have to worry about that. I didn't worry about it because I kind of like the look myself!
