There are a few reasons why I chose these shorts in particular. They were pleated at the front which I have found suits my body shape, they have a side zip so I didn't have to be too picky learning to master the front fly and the pattern is actually for pants as well so I was able to make them a bit longer according to the pattern. I am so happy I chose this pattern! I loved the way it turned out and for the first time I actually like wearing shorts!! I was so excited to have some new shorts for Hawaii I ended up making about 5 pairs in little under 2 weeks.
Pair 1 - Brown and Black
I wasn't sure about these shorts if they looked like pyjamas? Let me know what you think!
I was able to wear this pair to my casual Friday at work and they were so comfortable.
Pair 3 - Blue Denim
My favourite pair so far!
Pair 4 - Blue Lightweight Denim
These were the first pants I made as the tester pair. Excuse my droopy eyes it was so hard to take photos this day as it was very windy haha.
This pattern is so easy and I highly recommend to anyone wanting a fun and easy sewing project.
- There is only a small number of pattern pieces and I was able to make most of these shorts in under 2.5 hours (with all of the hand stitching).
- My favourite pairs were the heavier denim so I recommend using this type of material.
- The cost of each pair was under $20 (with the really good quality denim too).
Now all I have to make is a few more lightweight tops and I am set for my honeymoon in Hawaii!!
