.Essential Shorts.

It's a breakthrough since childbirth...I finally got my act together and produced a new pattern! Life feels semi-normal again!
 I wanted to sneak in a Summery pattern before the weather turns so was motivated to get to work on this new pattern for some easy-to-wear Women's shorts.

ESSENTIAL SHORTS
 Essential Shorts are a wardrobe staple, the pair of slim-fitting shorts you will find yourself choosing over and over again.
 Whether you choose to dress them up and have a fun night out or keep them casual for a relaxing day at the beach, Essential Shorts are a Summer must-have.
 Essential Shorts feature a flattering front waistband, elastic back waistband and drawstrings for a perfect fit.

Sitting on the knee, they are easy and comfortable to wear for all of your daily duties or night time adventures!
 I've got to say, I love wearing these shorts. The elastic in the back waistband means that they are super comfortable but the fit is still very flattering. Essential Shorts are suited to most mid-light weight fabrics. I've used mostly linens in my versions so far, these ones are made using Yarn-dyed Essex Linen in Denim from Robert Kaufman.
Essential Shorts are an easy fuss-free sew for any sewing level. You can easily make them a little shorter or longer if you feel like changing it up a bit and making a various pairs with different fabric choices will give variety to your Summer wardrobe.
Essential Shorts is avaliable in women's sizes 2x-small - 2x-large, catering for a wide range of sizes. You can purchase an Instant Download PDF Pattern from my website now or paper versions of the pattern will start hitting stores soon. Check out my list of stockists here.

If you would like to win a copy of Essential Shorts, simply leave a comment on this blog post!
(Please make sure you leave an email address with your comment. Giveaway will close Thursday 27th February and winner will be drawn at random.)
