Pattern Details

The Berry Bubble Shorts for ladies are beautifully finished. This bubble shorts pattern is fully lined and has no raw edges showing, giving a truly boutique professional finish.

This ladies pattern has short, mid-thigh and knee length options. A choice of leg binding or cuffs gives two totally different looks, and the straight or bubble leg finish means it suits all figures.

A great look through fall, winter and spring over tights, or just on their own in summer! Plus you can use light or medium weight fabrics so they are all-weather.

It has pleats in both the front and back, and an option to use either regular or buttonhole elastic for an adjustable fit across the back.

LADIES OPTIONS – Buttonhole or regular elastic. Bubble or straight leg finish. Plus for the ladies sizes only a cuff or leg binding, and 3 length options (short, mid-thigh and knee length)


Pattern includes sizes XXS to 5XL (see size chart tab above) and it’s gorgeous on curvy ladies!

The pattern is trim-free, comes in A4 or US letter size, and has layers in the PDF so you can print only the size/s you want. There is also an A0 format (pattern pieces only) in case you’d like to take it to a professional printer.

Suitable for woven fabrics only (not suitable for knits/stretch fabric). Serger/overlocker optional but NOT required.

This is the ladies’ version but it’s also available as a matching child’s pattern so you can do matching “Mommy and Me” sets! Get the child’s version here. Plus, there is the cutest 18 inch Doll version too! Buy the ladies and child’s version together in a bundle, save and get the dolls version free!

    These shorts are totally sewable for a confident beginner to intermediate seamstress. They have a quality finish that makes them comparable to off the rack clothing. I can’t wait to make more!!!

    I would say that it’s not hard and that the instructions are really good and that it’s pretty easy to customize fit. The shorts have ease which makes them comfortable, but they still feel dressier than my other shorts.

    It’s very comfortable and fully lined so the inside is as beautiful as the outside. And it comes in 3 lengths.

    Great pattern for summer shorts with style. Perfect for a sibling/momma and me outfit!

    Crystal Anderson

    I sewed up the Berry Bubble Shorts Unlined (utilizing the Add-On option), straight legs, with cuff hem. I love the finished look – they are flattering without being too tight or too puffy, and are easy to get on and off thanks to the elastic back band. The instructions are clear and easy to follow, and the pictures make it that much easier to understand each step. For the summer, these are the perfect comfy shorts (with pockets!)!

    These are the cutest shorts! There’s no denying there’s a bit of fiddly work in them but they are so worth it.

    I loved these shorts! They were fun to make and ended up really comfortable when I was done… which I wasn’t expecting. I sewed up the longer version with linen/rayon fabric and added kamsnaps. I can so see making these again with a fancier fabric and gorgeous buttons!

    This pattern was very easy! It is super comfortable and was very easy to adjust exactly how I wanted it to come out. A confident beginner could easily tackle this pattern with a little patience and a little extra time. I love the result I got from this pattern. I will for sure be making more!

    The instructions are incredibly clear and thorough which is very helpful. Before starting the project it all seemed a bit daunting, but once I got started, everything flowed very well thanks to the quality of the instructions (and instructional images).

    I have just sewn my 6th pair of Berry Bubble shorts/pants! I just love this pattern so much especially with the add on. I used a higher rise this time with a shorter yoke/waistband for my own idea on a look. I completely love how they turned out. This is such a great pattern with so many options and great instructions!

    Jennifer Reeves

    I wasn’t sure how this pattern would look on plus size, but I love it!

    The detailed instructions make this somewhat normal complicated and advanced pattern achievable for beginners, too, and the professional finished Rebecca’s uses makes this pattern shine.

The Small Print


Every pattern we make has been tried & tested first by our team, then by specially selected pre-testers, then by a group of up to 50 different sewers of different abilities, ages, sizes, shapes, body types, and experience levels.

We literally spend hours designing, testing and checking the pattern to make sure it works and the instructions are easy to follow. Hopefully you’ll love the end result as much as we do! But, if for any reason you don’t, please get in touch so we can help.


This pattern can be used to make beautiful little garments for personal use, or can be made in limited quantities to sell. You can only sell the finished product; you cannot sell the pattern or these instructions. We’d love you to include a credit to as the pattern designer when you make garments from the pattern to sell, but it’s up to you.


As soon as you have paid you will receive a link to download the pattern, so you can get started immediately if you like. Note, this is a digital, download-only pattern. You will not receive a physical copy in the post.
