    I really wanted to love this short, but it did not match expectations. I’m pear shaped, so the sizing was all off. I normally fit in a 10 in SA pants, but I had to take at least 2 inches off the waist. You should pick your size depending on your waist, not hips. The leg openings are SO WIDE that it looks like you’re wearing a skort. I took probably 5 inches out of the crotch and 8 inches from each of the leg openings to make it look more tailored. One I did all that, though, they do look pretty cute.

    I’ll probably make another set but redraft the size 8 pattern with the changes that I made above. I also put in an invisible zipper (highly suggested for a professional look), and I topstitched a few seams, plus did a blind hem on the shorts.

    The instructions for this were light but fine. It’s not a difficult piece to sew together.

How Do I Know What Size I Am?

Choosing your pattern size is the most important step and we will help you determine this with these easy to follow steps.

  1. When taking your measurements ensure that you take them against your skin and not over clothing. One can wear a comfortable bra and knickers whilst measuring, as this will provide you with the most accurate measurements.
  2. Tape measure has to sit firmly around the points you are measuring. But be careful not to pull it too tight, as this will give you the incorrect size.
  3. When measuring circumferences (B, C, D, E) it is important to note that the tape measure must remain parallel to the floor. It is sometimes best to take the measurements in front of a mirror; this will help you see the angle of the tape measure.
  4. You will only require the basic body measurements to determine your pattern size which is indicated on our mannequin below:
A. Shoulder Breadth

Place the tape at the edge of the shoulder. Measure along the top of the shoulder blade/across the highest point of the shoulders to the other edge, following the natural slope and allow an extra finger for ease of any movement.

B. Upper Arm Girth

This point is taken as a circumference at your widest point of your upper arm.

C. Bust

This point is taken as a circumference parallel to the floor at the fullest part of your chest.

D. Waist

This point is taken as a circumference and taken at the smallest part of your waist.

E. Hip

This point is taken as a circumference parallel to the floor at the widest part of your hips.
