Reconstructed Cashmere Boyshorts

My good friend joyolivia has been assiduously collecting old cashmere sweaters from Village Thrift for me for the past couple of months, while I have been staring at them timidly, wondering how I should reconstruct them. Boyshorts could provide a small project that might give good experience in reconstructing cashmere sweaters. A while back Banana Republic was selling cashmere boyshorts as PJs and the looked just lovely. I only really have a couple of pairs of boyshorts, and am not confident in my ability to trace a pattern - does anyone know of a pattern or have any advice for coming up with one?

What are boyshorts?

Do you have any patterns for pajama pants? You could just use that pattern and alter it for your shorts. Mmm, cashmere shorts. I made a scarf and mittens set out of an old cashmere sweater a couple months ago. My sister love them. Best of luck with your project!
