I am a very experienced seamstress and I found the waistband instructions on these shorts to be pretty confusing. I sewed it up my own way and it turned out okay, but gosh a lot of these patterns are needlessly fussy. The shorts are cute when done and fit well.
I've bought many patterns from here but only now felt compelled to write a review. This is my first Bonjour Teaspoon pattern that I've ever used however. These shorts are so ADORABLE, CLASSIC and therfore, TIMELESS. The instructions were well written and clear. And they just look so good!!! I would agree that these are an advanced beginner project. I've already made 3 pairs in about a week and a half. Usually I don't do multiples right away. But these shorts are outstanding.
What an adorable pair of shorts. Simple, sweet , comfortable, and the fit is perfect. Congratulations to the designer.
The ultimate go-to pattern! Cute? Check. Instructions clear? Check. Easy to make? Double check! I did finish the waistband slightly differently, only because of personal preference. This is an outstanding pattern!
I'm very happy with this pattern! Good directions, makes up quickly, good fit, and is very cute. It felt like instant gratification!
