Favorite shorts pattern so far!

I've been on a real sewing kick lately, and this is the third shorts pattern that I've tried in the past month. This is by far my favorite! There's just the right amount of ease through the hips, and I found the sizing to be very true to the chart. The pattern was easy to follow, and construction was simple. I thought the pockets might stick out, but they don't! They're perfect and very useful. The extra panels and multiple pockets make the styling options endless; I will definitely be making multiple pairs of these!

Cute and Comfy!

I really enjoyed sewing these shorts! Such a clever construction and the instructions were clear and precise. The results are really comfy as I expected them to be but also really flattering which was unexpected! They make a cute culotte type of silhouette and I've been froliking around in them all summer!

My new everywhere short!

As a beginner, this pattern was very easy to follow and had a lot of wiggle room when it came to sizing! I should have made my waistband a teeny bit bigger so that the elastic had more room to sit without rolling up when it's stretched out, but I will be making many more pairs of these in the future!

Good pattern for beginners!

I really like this pattern- it's well written and clear for beginners like me. The pockets are wonderful! I did take off one star for sizing issues. I measured myself twice and found that I'm in between sizes. According to the pattern I sized down. In the end, I would estimate that the shorts are still a size or two too large. I verified my measurements and that I chose the correct pattern size. I will be making these shorts again, but was disappointed in this aspect.

Super satisfying make, great fit and great instructions

I spent a rainy Saturday afternoon whipping these up and they're perfect! I've already got plans to make more and have been asked to make pairs for friends as well. The fit is great and I love the pockets / panelling design.
