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.

Mapua Shorts

I have made 2 pairs of these shorts now and really like the pattern. They were a good fit with no alterations required. Pattern instructions are mostly straightforward except for the elastic in the waistband. I cannot understand how it gives the best finish on the sides of the shorts. Overall this is not a detractor and it is a great pattern.

Mapua Shorts

Pattern made up easily and exactly as they were in the picture. The fit was very true to size. This pattern has excellent instructions especially for beginners. This is a great basic pattern which is perfect as is or adapted to you requirements.

Easy Pattern - fantastic instructions

The instructions are very thorough and easy to follow. I actually added to this pattern and made a lovely pair of wide-legged trousers. Very pleased with the result and a beautiful fit.

Simple straight forward pattern

I downloaded this pattern so my daughter could make herself some shorts. She was able to follow the instructions and produced a lovely pair of great fitting shorts. Will definitely use the pattern again.
