Just right

Made these according to the size chart and they are brilliant. Used a cotton decor fabric and was thrilled with the fit and the pockets. Didn’t make a belt but the flat front avoids any gathers in the front with minimal at the back. Will make more of these next summer.

Lovely shorts pattern

I made these for my daughter. The instructions are clear and easy to follow. The flat front is very flattering. The only changes I made were to the belt loops and waistband. I finished the raw top edge of the belt loops with a zig zag stitch, turned the top end under and then topstitched the uppermost edge of the waistband, stitching in the belt loops at the same time. This meant I had to use 1” elastic rather than 1.25” elastic in the back waistband. Very happy with the final result.

Lovely shorts pattern!

Easy to follow instructions and a true fit. I really like the flat waistband at the front (more flattering than gathers) and the gathering at the back can be covered with the tie belt. All in all a quick and easy sew!

Mapua Short love

I bought the pattern and made 3 pairs of shorts in very short order. This pattern is quick, easy to follow and the results are beautiful. I had to study fit guidelines as, apparently, I have a sway back and there was quite a bit of fabric in the back, but after that adjustment, these shorts fit beautifully. I particularly like the pockets. I'm a confident beginner sewist and found this pattern very easy to sew. Will be making many more this summer.
