Simple Shorts -- Free Pattern + Tutorial


Hello all, how's your summer been?  We've been busy, busy having fun and traveling all around.  So far we've been to four states, one National Park, and have plans for more fun in our horizon.  

All this playing around doesn't lend itself to sitting around and sewing like I like to do.  But I did notice that my girl was in need of some more shorts.  Using a pair of her shorts that I liked, I drafted a pattern to sew some up. It's a quick sew, about 45 minutes-- especially when you're stopping often to take photos.

 I loved how they turned out.  They're simple, functional and fit her just right.
Please note, she is a petite 2 1/2 year old, for a bigger size please add a 1/4 inch on all sides.

Above I did the pocket option.

Below, I skipped the pockets.

Happy Sewing.

If you sew these up, please let me know, I'd love to see them.
