The legs on this pattern were much wider than they appeared in the photos. And they came out looking too baggy. Luckily I made them up in a muslin first..

Perfect Shorts

Love these shorts. Easy to follow pattern, and great fit. Made in Natural IL019, and they are perfect.

Hi ! There are 2 pattern pieces named "back waistband" but I guess one of them is the front waistband. The question is "which one ?" Thanks a lot.

Sizing information

I can't seem to find any sizing information for the pattern. What are the body measurements for each size and are there any finished garment sizes available?

Hi! The sizing info is on page 4 of this PDF - I will upload a screenshot now as an image here as well under the "post your work section" ( the comment section doesn't allow to add images). Do email us if you have questions ask fabrics-store.com. Have a great day!

I widened and lengthened the legs on this pattern to make some comfy linen pants. They're 3/4 length and super comfortable. I made these in the IL019 middleweight linen. I'm definitely going to be making more!
