Sewing Notes

  • Did the fabric you used work well?: Fabric might be a bit busy to match with some of her tops, but they're fun. My daughter helped pick the fabric.
  • How did the sewing go?: FAST! Less than an hour.
  • How difficult was the sewing?: super simple

Pattern Notes

  • Were the instructions clear?: yes
    Sewing instructions are on the MADE website - flat front shorts tutorial. I'd prefer a quick "crib sheet" on the pattern itself but this worked fine.
  • Were the fabric recommendations correct?: yes
  • Did you make any changes to the pattern?: yes
    Very minor - added a 3/4" strip of interfacing to the front so the flat front stayed strong, and used 1/2" elastic in the back because that's what I had on hand. Also added topstitching around entire top of shorts to keep elastic in there straight.
  • Did the garment fit well?: yes
    They fit my skinny gal PERFECTLY. Exactly like I wanted with no alterations. Really couldn't be more perfect.
  • Overall Pattern: Great!
  • How would you rate this pattern?: 5
