Charlene Lee –
Quick and easy sew. The instructions are very clear and easy to follow.
Donna Jones –
I love this pattern! I love all the fantastic fitting advice and measurements, which meant I could measure myself and check EVERYTHING before I began my sew (inseam, back rise, front rise, as well as usual hip and waist) giving me confidence in a fantastic result. And it was! My shorts are fabulous! Paired with the ladies slip (waist, thigh or knee length) its a winner for all year round nightwear!
Loraine Wilkinson –
Great pattern made with cotton and bound the edges for a smooth finish. Looking forward to making more out of lightweight fabric.
Mireille Ribiere –
Had to get used about the french seam but it looks lovely.
Nadine Simard –
Perfect match for the slip pattern. This is a beginner part with option to use French seams to get your project to the next level.
Angel Pooley –
Beautiful shorts to match my slip. These shorts are super easy and quick and comfortable yet sexy for bed
Gabz Jefferson –
This pattern is easy and quick to make. A beginner-friendly pattern perfect for last minute present.
Amelia Keating –
Quick and easy pattern that looks gorgeous! It’s perfect for experimenting with fabric like silk, because it is such an easy sew. I love it!
Sarah Hopkins –
Perfect length shorts for pyjamas, I love the versatility of the pattern, depending on the fabric used. Easy to follow instructions, the french seams give it a professional and luxurious finish.
Clare Bowes –
This is a perfect beginner’s pattern, introducing you to binding, elastic waistband or French seams. So easy to sew together, with simple overlap when using binding.
It is a loose fit slip, size M/XL mix in a lovely bright colourful satin type cotton.
This matches perfectly with the Ladies Slip to make PJs for warm/ summery weather.
Bernadette Aitken –
These shorts make excellent pyjama shorts. They are loose and comfortable around the tops your legs. They are suitable for beginners or, depending on the edging used, a confident seamstress.
Carol A. Shaver –
I enjoyed sewing this and learned a few things! Thank you. It was well written and easy to follow. A few places were challenging as I’d never applied elastic in this way. But the directions were clear enough that I got it. Yay!
Michelle Mason –
I love these shorts and definitely want to make more for the summer months if time permits, they feel floaty and lovely and are comfy to wear, they also pair well with the slip for a summer pj pattern, I want to try my next pattern in some cotton to see how that differs in the feel compared to the semi sheer fabric I used this time and to attempt to learn how to do a rolled hem at last
Alexandria Phillip –
These shorts are adorable! Pretty quick and a great introduction to working with wovens. I liked that there are multiple hems so you can do the option you are most comfortable with or have multiple pairs in different styles. Great addition to your lounge or lingerie wardrobe.
Debbie Groves –
Fits well. Love the hemming options to change things up a bit!
Jemma Tredinnick –
This made a lovely pair of slinky pyjama shorts for my daughter (and they look great combined with the short version of the ladies slip). I used a slinky mystery woven fabric which did make it more difficult especially when doing the rolled hem. I would definitely make these again (but not sure I would do a rolled hem ever again!)
Nali Nali –
Ladies lingerie shorts made in size XS. It’s roomy and super comfortable. Easy to follow instructions and done in no time at all. Love it!
Maja Rus –
Simple and easy sew with great finished look. I will definitely sew another with fanciest fabric.
Cheryl Schneider –
This pattern was very easy to follow. The directions for putting it together were very clear. Especially how to put together the side seams with the hem already completed. I found this very easy to follow and I have never completed a pair of shorts in this manner before. The garment turned out perfectly in size. I did serge it together and serged on the elastic then turned over and stitched down the elastic to create the “band.”
Suzi Nasoor –
Love that It’s a simple sew which gives perfect and comfy results..I’m gonna use them as woven undies.
Veronika Lorenser –
A few firsts for me with this pattern: used a rolling foot for the hem and have never done such an elastic before. All instructions were very good (french seams e.g) and the result has a polished look. The fit seems for me very loose. The fit doesn’t work as well for cotton fabric, it looks a bit like a tent I’m afraid.
Mary Acosta –
i liked the slip but got size wrong and made adjustments. learned a new way to add elastic
Emma Gerrard –
I really enjoyed making the slip and shorts into a PJ set! Really quick makes that are a great use and practice of a range of useful and basic dressmaking techniques. So much potential with the Slip and Short set as it will work great with so many fabrics!
Deb Holland –
Also did the short slip as an extra sew. Loved this pattern, will certainly be making all my night attire from now on.
Sally Partridge –
I found the instructions easy to follow. The trickiest part was getting the elastic right. My first pair are far too big, and with sewn in elastic, it is impossible to alter. I reduced the elastic in the second pair. The basting around the edge puckered the fabric a bit, so I just basted around the curved edge to reduce puckering. I can’t wait to make the matching top.
Rachelle M Crosbie –
Easy pattern to follow and the result is very cute. I would have done an elastic channel normally, but the method used for this worked well with this fabric. Can’t wait to wear them!
Kathleen Conger –
A quick and easy item to sew, great for an advanced beginner to learn sewing on a curve and attaching elastic.
The Lingerie Shorts has a professional finished look. The binding is simply gorgeous and surprisingly easy to sew. The cut is so comfortable I made a few 🙂
Mercedes Parker –
This pattern is a go-to favorite! A super fast sew that can be customized to your preferences in a flash, without busting your whole stash!! They have become a holiday gift request from my friends and family.
Carolyn Jurick Taylor –
This was a fun and quick sew! I chose to use a flannel instead of a silky fabric as suggested, and I love the way they turned out – super soft and comfy. The sizes seems to run large so next time I’ll come down a size so they aren’t so baggy.
Carmen Brent –
Super cute and fun pattern! I love the overlapping part on the sides. It gives the little cut out at the bottom and looks sophisticated.
Angela Dailey –
Super easy and straightforward! I made it alittle too big because most short patterns are tight on my thighs but are baggy. Note to self for next time. Great for beginners!
Shawnie Best –
Quick and easy pattern. Instructions very easy to follow and fun to sew.
Devorah Zamansky –
The shorts were a much easier make and the instructions were fairly clear.
Anna Reshetylo –
These are going to be a new staple in my house! I made a pair, which was super easy and my mom and sister have both requested their own!
Jennifer Lichak –
The lingerie shorts are so so lovely! They feel decadent on and I love how you can add a bit of trim to make it feel special.
