I also added three-eighths inch to the height of the waist band. The 1.5-inch elastic likes to flip funny inside my first pair, and I hope this eliminates that problem.
I didn't really want to use pink for the topstitching, but it looked best when I tested several colors.
This was a quick make, just what I was looking for. I cut the shorts out in one evening and constructed them in an afternoon and evening with lots of interruptions.
