Great looking shorts. This pattern is on my to-do-list for Summer when it arrives Down Under.

Great shorts. Your legs won't be so blindingly white when you return from vacation!

You're so adorable!!!! I love your shorts. I only own one pair too and I HATE them (they are RTW). My mom just commented today I needed some sunless tanning lotion because my legs were so white! lol Have a fun trip!

Very nice looking shorts! With or without a tan, you can certainly wear these in are a young girl yet! You make everything you sew seem like it is so easy.....great seamstress!

These are fabulous shorts and just couldn't fit you better -- make more!

Sallygirl, you caught a mistake in my review! Thanks so much. You are right, I took SMALLER seams. I have corrected my review to say that I took 3/8 inch seams through the sides. Thanks everyone for the nice comments!

These are great shorts! Wear them a couple of times to the lake and you'll have tanned legs. My legs are aspirin white too.

Very, very cute! I'm curious why the larger seams with thicker fabric (I'm asking should I ever encounter this in my own sewing -- I probably would have thought I should do the opposite -- smaller seams for thicker fabric). Those fit you just perfectly!

They look great! And no paint!

Perfect. I can sympathize with the "shorter than you usually wear" feeling, but really, they are flattering and decent. Hang on to that pattern.

These are just terrific! ...and I think there is a law that forbids a woman who's had 9 children to look as good as you do :)

I love your shorts, they are a perfect fit and so well sewn!

I just think these are SO cute, and you can DEFINITELY wear ANY LENGTH shorts you WANT. WHO wears short shorts? WE wear short shorts! Okay, YOU wear short shorts, but you SHOULD. :o) I can't wait to see the next pair. ARE YOU DONE YET? I think Meggie is on the verge of finishing FOUR MORE PAIR. Maybe Bernard needs some short shorts for down at the shop. STRIPED ones. Heh-heh-heh.

Ok you convinced me, I want a pair. I fully support untanned legs as I have a pair of those too. Better for avoiding cancer. As for your look !!!!!! It is wonderful. I love those on you !!!

these look great. They're on my list to sew and seeing yours is inspiration to get to them!

They look great! I do like this pattern, too. I only have the waistband left on mine. Maybe, I should finish them tonight!

Thanks everyone for the nice comments! Yes, Peggy, this is some more of that fabulous denim from Annette! Hmmmm.... don't you have a bit of that denim also?!

These are perfect for the lake! They look really cute on you. BTW, is this "the denim"??

These are really cute and look great on you or I should say you look great in them! Power to "White Legs" Take plenty of suntan lotion. Have a fun vacation.

Those shorts look great!!! I think they look nice on you short. I just traced that pattern off (I mean I literally just finished) and hope they turn out as nice as yours!!

Nice shorts. I thought white legs were becoming more fashionable now that we know how harmful the rays of the sun can be. Be proud of your “white” legs! You are a good “white leg” role model for other women and your kids, too (especially girls)!

These look GREAT on you! The fit is absolutely perfect and I really think the length is flattering. Longer would be good, too, but you don't need to, because they look so nice as is. You made me laugh about those legs. The other day I was thinking, why don't I wear some of my nice summer skirts? Then I looked at myself in the mirror and knew why -- I can't inflict my skinny white legs upon the world! These are fantastic, and it looks like this could be a TNT pattern for any length pant for you!

Very cute shorts, Christas. I'm sure there will be a bit of colour by the end of the vacation.

Your legs look as white as my legs - and you are adorable in these shorts. Don't change a thing!
