Doc got a membership to the rec center and has been going to their gym (the couple that doesn’t work out together, stays together) and bought himself a new pair of REI shorts to wear. But it turns out they had exactly one (1) pocket. I had a roomful of fabric and knew about a pattern to use, so he got some gym shorts over the weekend:

These are the Motion Athletic Shorts from Greenstyle, made in a stretch ripstop from Ripstop By The Roll I had bought on a whim. There are two deep pockets on the front and a zip pocket in the back, PLUS a SECRET PHONE POCKET on the liner shorts (made from a perforated sport knit I had also bought on a whim):

These were fun to make and using up stash fabrics always feels good. Like I told Doc, though, you can’t know how a fabric or pattern is going to perform until you wear it to a workout, so we’ll see if the fit is right/the fabric breathes/the pockets are functional.

Those pockets tho! I’m tempted to make a pair for myself… I have enough fabric leftover and it’s not like we’d be seen together at the same gym.
