A New Australian Fan!

Great shorts, lovely cut/shape, comfy. Easy (ish) sew, even for a beginner like me :) The hardest part was getting the elastic to sit the way I wanted it to.

Super cute shorts!!

Brilliantly simple pattern and instructions for someone who considers themselves a beginner. I made these in a really short space of time, out of some leftover fabric I had lying around. I had to cut some of the panels along the crossgrain due to the amount of fabric I had, but I really like how the intersecting stripes turned out. I did manage to bust open a couple of the crotch seams when wearing for the first time, but I don't have an overlocker and I opted for cutting along the edges with pinking shears rather than sewing in a zigzag stitch so it's probably because of that (and my big booty). I might have to make another pair in the size up. Definitely recommend this pattern!


I love these! I made up a pair from scraps and I’m sure I’ll make it again. Super roomy and comfy. I made them in cord and they are ginormous but I like that look

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!
