        Great shorts...!

        I love this pattern.
        I made these up in medium weight linen for the summer.
        I omitted the cargo and rear welt pockets.
        The size from the pattern fitted me just fine.
        I thoroughly recommend this pattern....!

        Lovely cut-on waistband finish

        I made two pairs of these, one for my partner (size 36) and one for my 12yo son (size 29). I omitted the seat reinforcement and the cargo pockets as neither of them wanted those features.

        I french seamed the pocket linings, and will make the front pockets a little deeper for next time by request. The cut-on waistband is beautifully drafted and shaped. I found that the zip length for the size 36 was too short - it needs a 6 inch zip I think.

        I'm going to look at doing a pleat front for my partner next time as the pockets are pulling forward, and he generally purchases pleat fronts for himself. I'd also like to try out a variation with a nice inset coin pocket.

        Awesome shorts!! loving the fit! but spotted 2 errors in instructions

        These cargo shorts are great!!
        loving the unusual folds for the side pockets, and they fit perfectly (followed the chart in the doc)

        However, I've spotted 2 errors in the pdf instructions whilst making my first pair :
        step 11 : the lining and facing should be sewn both facing up (currently says to saw them both wrong side facing but lining will end being inside out if using a patterned fabric - simply flip the lining facing up so the facing sits with wrong side on it)
        step 30 : it's a copy paste from step 28, where it should be instruction on how to sew button and buttonhole.

        Hope this helps!

        Great patter with perfect fit. No alterations needed. The cut-on-waist is perfect while cycling. Well written instructions accomplished by good illustrations.
