Literally the BEST shorts I have ever owned! I LOVE skirts but as a plus size woman with no thigh gap, it’s quite uncomfortable when my thighs rub against each other, equally most shorts are not very forgiving to the larger thighs and often leave my legs looking like sausages… These are the best of skirts and the best of shorts all rolled into one quick and simple pattern that I managed to sew up in only a few hours! These are the best shorts in the world and such a well written and easy pattern! I also really love that it’s sized in colours rather than putting me at an extra large or whatever.
Fabulous pattern, pattern goes together easily, instructions are clear and the finished culottes are awesome. I’ve received many compliments when wearing them, thank you!

This pattern was quick, easy, and versatile! I wanted comfy shorts that weren’t tight and these fit the bill and were so easy to sew up in less than 2 hours from printing to wearing.
