    DO IT! These are perfect for the summer, and can easily work over leggings/tights for the cooler months!

    Do it! They are so much fun to make with such a rewarding result! I would tell them that it is a great pattern for those without a serger too!

    Super cute shorts. Lots of steps but broken down into manageable steps so that you can do them well, and so you can take a break and come back again and continue on.

    I would just gush about why not to buy it!!! If you wanted a beautifully constructed garment, that has technical bits and has a bit of a challenge to then this is for them. There is no chance of failing with this pattern as the instructions are just beautifully worded and the addition of images helps immensely. There are a lot of shorts patterns out there but I feel Rebecca’s patterns are starting to stand out from the crowd due to her including more technical sewing in her pdf’s but making sure they are not out of reach for a novice to attempt. I love the way everything is enclosed and lined. Nothing is more classier than pleats and binding on shorts and I think Rebecca has got a true star of a pattern on her hands!! Love, love, love it!!!

    You will absolutely LOVE the finished product. The sewing process is more complicated than a simple shirt and takes time, but you will enjoy it!
