Introducing the Swing Shorts – two versatile patterns in one, perfect for woven fabrics.

One style features a stylish shaped waistband with a back zip, while the other offers the ease of a pull-on elastic waist. Both designs flare beautifully from the waist, giving the look and feel of a playful circle skirt, with optional pockets for added convenience.

If you're after a pair of shorts that sit beautifully around the torso & swing out softly over the thighs, with no hugging in sight, this is the pair of shorts for you. Choose from a tailored or relaxed vibe.


  • Shorts flare from waist to wide hem.
  • Resembles circle skirt... but are shorts.
  • Wide ‘swing’ leg openings. 
  • 2 lengths: short & above the knee. 
  • Waistband sits just below the natural waist.
  • Side seams cut on the bias.  
  • Optional pockets.

STYLE 1: Tailored.

  • More tailored look.
  • Narrow shaped waistband. 
  • Simple back zip. 

STYLE 2: Relaxed.

  • Pull-on elastic waistband. 
  • Quick & easy style to sew. 


 These shorts look a lot like a skirt with all the benefits of a pair of shorts.

Dressed up or down, they are the perfect compliment to your spring & summer wardrobe.

Playing in the park, doing the grocery shopping, having coffee with the girls or a date with someone special, the Ladies Swing Shorts are ideal. They are the beautifully feminine shorts that are easy to dress up for the office or a date or down for the park.  And they won't fly up & show your fancy knickers like a skirt will.
