These shorts came together so quickly and easily. I’m very happy I purchased this pattern!

So cute I made three pairs in a sitting!!!

I loved this pattern since I got it but just didn't have the chance to sew it until this past weekend. It is super cute! The instructions are easy to follow, and the pattern works up quickly. I even used knit fabric on a pair, and they turned out just as cute as the woven ones. You can use wide ribbon remnants to make really cute waistbands, if you want.

Love it

So detailed!

These were a little fiddly to make, due to all the tiny details, but the result was so worth it! These shorts are a favourite item in my daughter's dolly wardrobe! Also as with all DTC patterns, the instructions are clear and detailed.

Sporty shorts

My granddaughter is going to love the shorts for her doll. This is the style of shorts that she likes to wear. I am amazed a the detail. The pattern was easy to follow although time consuming. Well worth it.
