(From Colette website) These simple and cute shorts are so quick to sew, you could make them in every color. Pockets are set into a front side seam and optionally close with buttons. The shorts sport a 4 1/2 inch inseam length and close with an invisible side zipper.
Size 0-18, I made size 4
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
The instructions were easy to follow. There were links to website tutorials for further information on some of the techniques, which was great for beginners
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I liked the clarity of the instructions and the design of the shorts from the front. The only thing I disliked is that the pattern sits quite tight around the back, where I would usually prefer a looser fit. It was still wearable and quite comfortable though, and it's my fault that I didn't make a muslin first.
Green/grey stretch denim
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, I would like to make these again
This was the first time I had made shorts and a great pattern to begin with. Please see my blog for further photos and info:
