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

This pattern is great, the instructions comprehensive and easy to follow. I used some leftover blue/grey linen from a pair of curtains, and achieved a great fit and a great finish. I made a size 12 without a belt and lengthened them by a couple of inches. The pockets are nice and sleek and don’t stick out. (I hate that!) Definitely recommend, will definitely make more pairs!

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.
