I like the yellow pair-very slenderizing!! Lovely-maybe re-think this pattern from an OK to a Yeah, it looks great from here.

That waistband is very flattering on you. Nice shorts.

The look fine, esp the yellow ones....a hot colour this spring, I had the same problem with linen pants until a friend mentioned i should prewash and dry the linen in order to shrink it....some people do this three times in order to stabilize the linen. It also helps make a heavier linen more wrinkle resistant. Diane

I think this pattern is well worth tweaking and making more. Very nice style. You could always widen the waistband or add to the crotch depth if you want them to ride a litle higher.

they fit you very well, I really like the color just what is showing for spring, the brighter colors.

That shade of yellow is absolutely gorgeous. And both pairs seem to fit you so well!

These shorts look great. I've been looking for such a pattern for a long time. I'm very happy you reviewed this, this might be the one for me.

These cute shorts are a lot more flattering on you than you realize. And the yellow linen is a pretty great color for you, too. Your photo sold me; I'm buying this pattern ASAP. -Lily

I agree with others that the yellow pair is very slenderizing and flattering on you. Thanks for the review. BTW....I agree that we need a "just ok" rating. LOL Although these shorts are much better than just ok.

Nice review - I like the waistband at that level.
