Summer Shorts 'Oscar'
This listing includes 3 zip files for the A4, US letter size and German language version. Just download the one you need. If you are unsure that you have an unzip program a quick convo with your email and I will send the files the old fashioned way by email.
These shorts are a total breeze. They have a faux zipper flap and an elasticated waist which makes this a quick afternoon project. There are a few new tricks to sewing this one,making it look totally professional. The fit is perfect too, the first shorts were already made last year, but I wasn't totally happy with the result and posponed the release to this summer. A long wait, but I think its been worthwhile.
Once you have made one you will be running them up all the time. Best of all it only takes just over half a yard of fabric to make one of these.
The back pockets are oversized and just beg for a name embroidery or favourite badge, I didn't do this for the sample but it would be great. Can't wait to see what you come up with for this one.
On frocks&frolics.com you will find the project page with more tips and examples plus all videos to this project in one space.
The last picture in the gallery shows the back view of the boys and girls shorts. Both can be purchased as a pack at a reduced priced of $ 9.50 under a separate listing.
Whether you are an expert or just starting out the video tutorial will make it very clear what you have to do. If you are unsure if you can handle this pattern then simply watch the video to reassure yourself before you purchase the pattern. And for all those of you that love to keep all instruction neatly in a folder,my instructions booklet (attached to size 2) contains page after page with photo's just to make doubly sure you know what to do.
The pattern is available for immediate download so you can get started straight away.
Your pattern comes with all the sizes : 1-2, 2-3, 3-4, 4-5, 5 -6 & 6-7. The 6-7 I will mail to you as Etsy.com only lets me upload 5 files. The instructions are attached to age 2-3.
None of my patterns are multi sized so there is one size per file, this saves a lot of paper and confusion as to which line you have to cut.
Every pattern is hand drafted and then imported into a CAD program to make sure you have a pattern that fits and looks good too! No pattern is automatically graded or computer generated with software. Having trained as a tailor 30 years ago I know that pattern generating software can never replace the skill of a pattern drafted by hand. Try my patterns and you will love the fit. At least I hope you will :)
I would love it if you shared your successes with me and the ever growing circle of friends on my facebook page; and if you have a stunning idea you can certainly inspire me.
The pattern pack includes:
• A pattern in PDF format ready to print on regular A4 and US letter size paper with assembly
• Detailed step by step photo tutorial
• Detailed video instructions on You Tube http://youtu.be/TBP-b3kUZtA

A serger/overlocker is an advantage when making the shorts.
If you want to reproduce the shorts for your own small business I would be delighted.
