            Easy quick shorts

            Fabulously quick and super easy shorts to make
            Only thing I had to do was drop a size. Use up all my scrap bits of material. Fantastic pattern 😍

            Simply the Best!!!

            Just love this pattern, super versatile and options galore. I have made 5 pairs of shorts so far. Two more ready to go plus a pair of pants for pyjamas. Just an amazing pattern with incredible options and instructions as usual for the team from PE.

            Easiest and best shorts pattern

            This is by far my most used shorts/pants pattern. My son loves the easy fit and wears tumblebums almost every day and the knickerbocker option is so cute for girls.
