The Swim & Surf Shorts are a summer staple.
Designed for wearing in the water, they include an optional integrated swim bottom. The wide elastic waistband sits below the natural waist with options for a decorative or functional drawstring. Two lengths are included: short ‘swim’ style and long ‘surf’ style.
Sew up a pair out of light to medium weight cotton and omit the swim bottoms for a comfortable pair of shorts perfect for the playground.
This pattern is an intermediate sewing level due to the bias binding and use of swim knit.
Computer drawn, printable pattern pieces are no-trim, and the pattern includes layers so that you can print only the size you need. Detailed tutorial includes photographs for each step. See listing photographs for size chart and required materials.
