I need a pattern or link

I want to make some hot pants or bike shorts. I have a derby uniform to buy and I don't want to pay $30 for a pair of hot pants. Can someone point me in the right direction please.

  • Just type in google search "pattern, hot pants" you might find what you're lookin for.

  • Or check out Mcalls or Simplicity patterns.

  • I've found a few patterns for purchase but the patterns themselves are around $12.

  • A pattern is going to be $4 or so. Material probably $10. Notions $5. Your time and since you do not know where to get a pattern, I doubt that you are an expert seamstress, is worth something. On top of this pants are not a good thing to do as a starter project. Getting the right fit can be very difficult.

    I would shop the discount stores and see if I couldn't find something cheaper.
    Just My Humble Opinion.
