DIY Shorts: Pattern Review V2981 + What I Wore

Let The Sunshine In!
V2981


DIY Top shown here & New DIY Shorts 



Pattern Description: Fitted Straight Shorts

Pattern Sizing: I cut size 4

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes

Were the instructions easy to follow? These are super simple so if you have made a pair of pants before you will breeze through this.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love this pattern because I never find shorts with the right fit, length or style. This pattern gives me all of that!

Fabric Used: I used a stretch sateen in bright yellow

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None

Would you sew it again? I will be making a few more of these.


Would you recommend it to others? Yes!

Conclusion: I love my pants! and I got to wear them with my DIY top I spoke about a few months ago.
