    1. Just what we needed  star rating

      These worked out great for me and my pre-teen. The directions were clear and the shorts came together easily. I added 3-5 inches in length for each of us.

      I added 3 " length. Fully lined shorts feel awesome for a day at the beach!

      It was very quick and easy to sew up these shorts. They fit great and look good and cover what needs to be covered.

    4. Just what I needed  star rating

      I needed emergency swim bottoms, and I wanted a boyshort style. These were perfect. My only quibble is that the different sizes were different colored lines, which would not print in grayscale, so I had to grade down from the one black-printing size myself. With that said, I sewed them and love love love them. The lining instructions were fast and perfect. I did add one inch to the length, based on the previous review.

    5. Quick and easy sew but a little short  star rating

      This pattern was a nice and easy sew. Not too hard for a beginner to try, if they wanted. The only issue I had was that the shorts are kind of short. I made them for my sister who said they kept "rolling" up on her while she was swimming until it looked like she had a bikini bottom on.

      I cut another pair and lengthened them three inches. This seemed to solve that problem and made them a more modest, mid-thigh length.

    6. Perfect all around  star rating

      I had to make an entire swimsuit in one night to be worn the next day. I went by measurements and they were 100% perfect on the first try. Saved the day for a modest, insecure teenager. Can't get any better than that!

    7. Super comfortable!  star rating

      Posted by Aimee on 17th Oct 2015

      This pattern came together very fast and the fit was spot on. I did make two adjustments: I added length to the shorts, since I need a little more coverage on my thighs and made the band a little thicker to come higher on my stomach. I am able to swim and play with my kids without worrying about the suit riding up. I no longer dread wearing a swimsuit.

    8. Fabulous  star rating

      Super quick sew and the fit is great. I also made the tankini top - I will never go swimsuit shopping again! Sewing my own for a custom fit is infinitely better, not to mention way less expensive!! Thank you Peek-a-Boo pattern shop, I no longer dread needing a new swimsuit.

      I love these swim shorts! They are quick and easy to sew. The directions are fantastic. I added a little length at the bottom and a little to the rise. They are perfect! I have already made two pairs! I plan to make more as workout shorts. :)

    10. Quick, Comfy Boy Shorts  star rating

      Posted by Ananda on 27th Mar 2015

      I love a good pair of boy shorts for my swimsuit. I love the extra coverage they provide. I have tried several times over the years to draft my own pattern, but it's never been quite right. This pattern is spot on! They are fully lined, and have a soft, yoga style waistband. They sew up super quick. From cut out to finished was about 30 minutes! Would also make great workout shorts! Great pattern!
