Quick & Easy Shorts Pattern!

This was a super easy and fast pattern to sew! As a beginner, it only took me about two hours from cutting out the pattern to making my final stitches! For someone more advanced, it would be no time at all! Love how it turned out!!

darling pattern

Very cute pattern. Instructions are easy to understand. Many possibilities for variety of pattern. Enjoyed making the shorts tho they seemed to run slightly large for my 2 year old granddaughter. Will make them again!

fab for skinnies

Great easy pattern, very quick sew. however I didn't like that the front and back were the same, this caused us to have fit issues, I adjusted rise as per the separate tutorial but they are still unwearable. if you daughter is slim these would be fab, but not recommended for a rounder child, mine 23.5" waist made age 6.

Very cute and extremely easy to make

The pattern is extremely clear, it was TTS for my 4yo, and the shorts are extremely cute and comfortable.

Easy to make

I purchased the pdf pattern for these shorts, and made them without the ruffle. This company had a suggestion on their blog for making them as a reversible pair of shorts and that is what I did. They came out perfectly and were easy to make. I would attach a picture if that were possible, but I do not see a way.

Cute look

This pattern has a very cute look to it. I do not care for the front and back of the shorts being the almost the same size. This causes a shortage for a diaper in the back and extra baggage in front when going up a size to fit. However if you daughter is very slim I think they would be perfect. (my daughter is healthy).
