here are the first steps for the plaid shorts and jacket. Starting with the pattern for the shorts:
take your shorts and carefully copy front and back pattern. the back will be a little more complicated, since you need to pull it around the front.
add some cm to the front for the later zipper
add seam allowance all around. I gave it some additional cm all around making sure the pants will be big enough, I also added cm on the top and hem
draw on your pocket
do the same with the back
copy the pocket parts out, one part until the side-seam, one until the pocket line, and also cut to the pocket line at the front part, of course with seam allowance
