slightly blousy and all girl. The shorts are finished with a
narrow hem and elastic waistband. Ribbon or fabric ties

short or just cinched a bit. These shorts are adorable on
girls of all ages and can be made in less than a hour and
with very little fabric.

These shorts are very simple to make. Great for beginners and advanced seamstresses, and especially for people sewing for a living. These are very cost effective. They require little supplies and pack a lot of punch!

***Edited to add***
This pattern was designed and digitized a while ago. The pattern pieces are pretty lame compared to the current standards. We don't want to take the pattern off the market and have not had time to update it yet. Please be aware that the pattern pieces do not line up perfectly. They still make a darling pair of shorts, but if you're looking for perfection. Buyer beware. :) ***
