  1. Adorable!

    Posted by Pam on 24th May 2015

    I love these shorts! I'm a very new beginner and managed to sew these up fairly easily. It forced me to learn how to use my buttonhole foot which is a good thing (and so darn easy). I will make more of these for sure. It was fun!

  2. Great pattern

    Posted by Claire on 10th May 2015

    Made a pair of these for my 3 year old, and the fit was great!
    Clear instructions. Struggled with the band- but that's probably just me! Might just add the band onto the front / back next time and fold over (using same fabric of course!)
    Making pairs for my 6 and 9 yr olds next!

  3. Download problems

    Ordered this via my Tablet and haven't be able to download pattern to print off (tried via Tablet and P.C.)

  4. Simple, but cute!

    Another winner! I sewed up two of these in a morning--they were that easy. And the boys have loved wearing them to the beach and the pool.

  5. Great Tutorial & Easy to follow!

    Made my first pair last night and loved them! The fabric can be a little tricky to sew with, but once you get a feel it’s great. The pattern is easy to follow and the fit afterwards is wonderful. Many options to add detail to make them your own. I made the ‘pocket’ functional and love them even more. I see many more in my future and about 2/3 the cost of purchasing in stores! LOVE!
