FABRIC

Linen, cotton duck, cotton sateen, cotton canvas and linen/cotton blends are highly recommended for this pattern. We have also had success with upcycled cotton curtains.

WHAT DO I GET WITH MY PURCHASE?

Please note you are purchasing a digital pattern that will be sent directly to your email inbox after payment. You can print this pattern at home on A4 or US letter-sized paper or take it to a print shop for large scale printing (AO size). *You will not receive a hard copy printed pattern.*

Instant download available immediately after checkout includes:

1. Instructions

2. PAH Pattern file (PAH=Print at home)
For printing in A4 or US Letter on a home printer. Printing at home is the most cost-effective, and sticking your pattern tiles together to make your full size pattern is easy. Further information for printing at home can be found in our Resources section here. 

3. AO Pattern file
AO is a large scale file designed to be printed at a Print Copy Shop. You cannot print this on your home printer as it is too big. If you choose to use this large file you will pay extra to have it printed but you do not have to stick anything together.

You can use the ADOBE LAYERS FEATURE to open the PAH pattern file and print only the size you need (and eliminate the "noise" of the unwanted sizes). You can also use the URL and bookmark links within the file to quickly access information and support. Download Adobe Reader for free (for Windows and Mac) here.

Summer shorts

Straighforward pattern, fits well. I lengthened them easily and will make a second pair

Two pairs made with varying results

Overall I love the outcome of this pattern. The first pair I made I tried really hard to use the finished measurements and decided on a size 14 … I am usually an ‘off the rack Australian 12’ but was trying to be a ‘good sewist’. They were … one size too big (hahaha). Second pair I made in size 12 was spot-on. I consider myself a confident beginner but obviously I’m still learning.

Great shorts

My shorts turned out really well, but will have to drop a few kilos to be able to carry off the tie belt better. Will be making a few more for sure !!!

Shorts and longs

A really good and easy pattern to follow, I made the shorts as a mock up for a longer pair of trousers. It turned out so well I now have both. The sizing was good, which is always a bonus when you are on the plus size of “ordinary”. I have also purchased the stitch bird dress, but haven’t made that yet. Thank you

Very easy to sew shorts

The shorts came together very easily and quickly. Straightforward instructions that worked! I’ll definitely be making these again this summer.
