Yes, you CAN make own pants (or shorts)! The Emerson Crop Pant/Shorts from True Bias are a great beginner project for learning the basics of garment sewing, and they are easy to fit because the elastic waist means there are no zippers, buttons, or closures to worry about (plus they're so cute).
From the pattern designer:
The Emerson pattern is a pull-on crop pant or short with an elasticized back and flattering front waistband. Views A and B have a mid rise that sits just below the natural waist. Views C and D have a high rise that sits over the belly button. All views have front pleats and side pockets. Views A and C are a cropped, wide leg pant, hitting a couple of inches above the ankle. Views B and D are a short with an approximate 4 inch inseam.
Light to medium weight woven fabrics such as linen, cotton, rayon challis, and chambray.
Coordinating thread, lightweight fusible interfacing (0.25 yds), 1 1/2” wide elastic (1 yd), safety pin.
