I love seeing both new & experienced sewers enjoy sewing & wearing clothes made using my patterns. I also know that not everyone can sew. So, small home-based handmade businesses selling items on Facebook, Etsy or similar, are welcome to sell products made from Pattern Emporium patterns, but I do kindly ask that you reference Pattern Emporium somewhere in your product descriptions.Due the nature of the item, refunds after purchase are not possible.

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.
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.
