Buy the Breeze Shorts sewing pattern from Madeit Patterns. The Breeze Shorts are minimalist, relaxed-fit summer shorts. They feature handy side pockets and a convenient back patch pocket. The wide, old-school boxing-style elasticated waistband is an aesthetic statement that also makes for an easy fit.
The Breeze Shorts are slightly longer than your average pair of shorts with an airy fit around the leg. There’s nothing like a summer Breeze, so bring on the sunshine, get those legs out and lap up the vitamin D.
Note: This pattern is part of Madeit Patterns’ No Frills pattern range. These patterns are suited to a more confident maker. Only very basic written instructions are provided – there are no step-by-step photos or illustrations.
A matching pattern for children and teens is available here.
