Smathers Beach Shorts are semi form fitted in the hip and rump area. The side panels are designed to have a nice flowing flare. The flare allows them to be cool and airy, hip and stylish, yet mommy/daddy and school approved shorts. Drape of side panels allows them to be airy, cool and comfy while playing in hotter weather. We have incorporated a less flared panel for slimmer children, or for the ones desiring less flare. These shorts can be made with any type of medium weight knit (for structure) with a 30% stretch or more. Waistband requires a more structured medium weight knit, with a minimum stretch of 50% or more with excellent recovery.
What really make these shorts cool is their over-all geometrical shape. Yes, I can be the little nerd queen as I love shapes and angles. The pockets truly bring the uniqueness to these shorts. They are usable pockets, not fake. There are a few to meet your own geometric uniqueness. When combined with our unique side panel, these pockets just add a whole new personality. You may choose to leave the pockets off to create a whole new look with one of your favorite fabrics or panels, or to add ruffles to the side panels.
Even better, we have included the 18" doll pattern for free, so that the little girl you sew for can have a matching pair of dolls shorts for her favorite doll. Now that is awesome. Some testers were able to fit these shorts on their 15" Bitty Baby with no additional adjustments required. Now that is a double awesome right there.
We are hoping the Smathers Beach line brings you and the little girl you sew for, the uniqueness you desire.
Let your journey begin and creative energy flow with this pattern. We are all uniquely made. Let’s get ready to make some unique shorts for the ones we love.
