Pattern for sideways-constructed shorts to ensure your personal fit, no matter your size or shape!

Paid PDF includes cleaned-up instructions and useful diagrams to understand the construction.

I believe sideways construction has the following benefits:

  • Better fit, especially for curvier bodies.
  • Fabric has nicer drape and is less see-through.
  • Barely any counting for increases, unlike top-down construction.

My patterns are not written with exact numbers of stitches. Instead, they’ll show you how to measure-as-you-go either by trying the piece on or taking your body measurements and working the piece accordingly.

This allows you to make these shorts in any size, fit or length.

If there are any clarifications needed please feel free to message me.

This pattern is meant for your personal use. Please do not sell items made from this pattern, and to credit my design when posting items made from this pattern. Thank you!
