Suggested fabrics: Use bottom weight, woven fabric with a firm stretch and great recovery. 10% to 15% stretch is ideal. Fabric with less stretch creates more fitted shorts and vice versa. Stretch twill and stretch denim are great choices.
Fabric requirements: 54″ (135 cm) wide fabric: Short length, 1 1/8 – 1 1/2 yards (1.1 – 1.4 m) // Medium length, 1 1/4 – 1 5/8 yards (1.1 – 1.5 m) // Long length, 1 3/8 – 1 7/8 yards (1.2 – 1.7 m).
Sizing: US 00 – 20 (approx. UK 8 – 22). Please check the size chart and finished garment measurements.
Notions: Medium weight fusible woven or weft insertion interfacing; 1/4″ (6 mm) wide twill tape as long as your waist, plus 3″ (7.6 cm) (you can also cut your own from non-stretch, lightweight fabric selvedge); two 5/8″ (1.6 cm) regular, flat, sewn-on buttons (these are concealed and not visible from outside of the garment) // Fly front with zipper option: 5″ (13 cm) or longer closed-end, metal or nylon zipper (longer zipper will be easier to install); one 5/8″ (1.6 cm) button (jean button or regular sewn-on button) // Buttoned fly front option: four 5/8″ (1.6 cm) buttons (jean buttons or regular sewn-on buttons).
PDF pattern includes: Digital pattern compatible with both US letter and A4 paper sizes; A0 copy shop file; step-by-step illustrated instructions. The print-at-home pattern is a layered PDF, so you can select your size before printing.
