For these shorts, I started with an X-Large cotton shirt from Dollar Store. The waistband was made with coordinating knit from my stash.
Here's the result. The plaids don't match up, but they didn't match on the shirt. (Matching plaid takes more material, and with cheap shirts from the Dollar Store you can bet they use as little fabric as possible.)
They fit even better than the last pair. I used my own shorts pattern again.
