Hi sew friends! Today, I have a new round of "Stuff I Made” and today’s theme is shorts. I love wearing shorts in the summer so I thought that it would be fun to show you a few of my favorite pairs. In the video, I compare the design details of each of these women’s shorts sewing patterns and give a quick review and my size info. Click through to watch the video and get all the pattern details and links. Let me know in the comments which one is your favorite and if you have a favorite shorts pattern.
Today I’m sharing a quick and easy summer make, paper bag waist shorts. I love a quick sew because it scratches that need to sew itch and gives you results quickly, an instant gratification project. I actually managed to sew these from start to finish in about 90 minutes (not including cutting and pattern prep). It was a fun way to spend a weekend morning; just concentrating on sewing and not thinking about silly things like to-do lists.
When summer rolls around, I pretty much live in shorts. I love the casual, ready for anything look that they impart. I wear shorts all day and for sleeping too. So of course I’ve sewed a lot of pairs of shorts. I know shorts are not for everyone but I was a little surprised that there are not more shorts sewing patterns available. But I was also pleased to find a number of patterns with really cool design details. In today’s post, I’ve rounded up 10 of my favorite shorts sewing patterns to inspire your summer sewing. I’ve sewn a handful of these and the rest are ones I simply love the design of. Read on for all the details and links.
