THIS IS A DIGITAL PDF SEWING PATTERN

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.

These fabulous shorts, that look so much like a skirt, include 2 options for you to sew: zipped or pull-on.

FEATURES
  • 2 lengths: short & above the knee. 
  • Waistband sits just below the natural waist.
  • Side seams cut on the bias.  
  • Wide ‘swing’ leg openings. 
  • Fabulous for twirling. 
  • Optional pockets.
  •  

    STYLE 1: TAILORED SWING SHORTS

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

    STYLE 2: RELAXED PULL-ON SWING SHORTS

  • Super relaxed.
  • Full elastic waistband. 
  • Quick & easy style to sew. 
  •  

    Why are they so great? 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.
