Ladies Pleat Front Shorts sewing pattern

$12.50

Details

STYLE OUTLINE:

This pleat front ladies shorts sewing pattern has 2 main style options to sew - a full elastic waistband or shaped waistband with side zip. Optional pockets, belt loops & sash.

As with all Pattern Emporium patterns, the sewing instructions outline how to achieve a professional looking finish.

OPTION 1: The Zipped Hepburn Shorts
This is a very relaxed design. It features a low sitting waistband & easy crotch. These are not 'snug fit' shorts.
  • Semi tailored, loose fitting short
  • Shaped waistband
  • Easy side zip*
  • Side pockets
  • 2 length options
  • Pleat front
  • Darted back
  • Belt loops & optional sash & bound edge pockets

* Don't let the zip scare you, I have a very simple method that will have you excited about how quickly & easily you now insert zips. 

OPTION 2:  The Pull-On Hepburn Shorts
BUT if you're after a super quick pair, you can make the elastic waist version with the Easy Pull-On Shorts. The are not as tailored as the Hepburns but they do have some of the same features & some extras.
  • Simple straight forward pair of shorts
  • Quick & easy to sew 
  • Flat front waistband
  • Elastic back
  • Front pleats
  • Comfy legs

    FABRIC & TRIM OUTLINE:

    TRIM REQUIREMENTS:
    Style 1 Pull-On Shorts - 32mm (1.25") elastic

    FABRIC SUGGESTIONS: These shorts can be made in Cotton Voile, Quilting Cotton, Lawn, Gagerdine, Cotton Sateen, Rayon, Silk & Silk-like fabrics, Linen & Linen Blends, Chambray, Denim. My favourite is quilting cotton because of all the fabulous prints you can choose from.

    FABRIC REQUIREMENTS: The following table outlines fabric requirements based on 110cm (44") fabric.

    Please note: (1) The estimates below do not include directional fabrics. I recommend you cut out the pattern & lay the pieces down on a flat surface to help estimate fabric needs for directional fabric.  (2) It's wise to pre-wash your fabrics, particularly those containing natural fibres.
