|Pattern Description: |
Shorts in two lengths, with a lace/underlining option.
I made a 14. I usually make a 12 (I'm a 6 or 8 in rtw) so I think this might run very slightly on the smaller side, in the waist at least.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, exactly like.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes, but I don't know why this pattern has an "easy" sign on it. It wasn't hard for me, but I've done fly fronts, underlinings and curved waistbands before. For a beginner, these elements would not be easy and you would need to look up extra help for the front fly zip because the instructions are minimal and seem to assume you know how they work. It seems like they slap an easy sign on pretty much any pattern nowadays!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I really like this pattern a lot! I had the perfect lace to make shorts with and although I could have used my go-to shorts pattern and added underlining, it was nice that this pattern had the work done for me. It's very on-trend with what's in the stores this season, which is always great to see in the new pattern lines.
I used a black lace with a black cotton underlining.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I omitted the pockets so as not to add extra bulk to the front and I did not use the lace on the waistband. I never plan to wear them with a tucked in shirt, so I just used the black cotton for the waistband. Since they're pretty high-waisted shorts, it will never show anyway, although it does still look nice.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I might make these again. The fit is great, even the length and I highly recommend it to others.
Great pattern and a very "in" look right now. Beginners, attempt with help
