The wrapped front on these shorts is so trendy for summer. Highlight the design with striped fabric, or make these in all black for a fabulous going out look. The micro mini hem and side zip have the perfect summer fit.


Start a pick up soccer game or go for a jog in these Drawstring Gym Shorts with elasticated waist, a bound hem and practical side pockets. The two tone design is great for your team colors!


No tanlines in this Jersey Tube Top! Tube tops are a summer staple for soaking up the sun. This one is quick and easy to sew in two toned jersey. For more contrast, make one panel in a stripe!


Show your team spirit in two tone Contrast Sport Shorts, or just pick your favorite shades of summer neon. These shorts are sporty and comfortable with an elastic waistband for running on the beach or playing some volleyball in the park.


Sailor style draws plenty of attention to your legs in these short Sailor Shorts. Get a fresh look with stripes, or pick navy or khaki for a more traditional look. The bib front is decorated with gold buttons and side pockets.


Sturdy Cargo Shorts with Belt are just what you need for hiking, biking, or traveling around a new city. These shorts have a modest cut and roomy pockets for a practical summer outfit.


Make this basic Jersey Tank pop in a bold fuchsia or tangerine jersey. It’s an essential shape for summer.


Soak up the sun in a playful Strapless Romper. A sash and shirring around the bust keeps the strapless design in place. You can hit the beach with no worries… this all-in-one piece has you covered with great retro style and hip pockets.

These designs want to be paired with fun accessories. Think roller skates, big sunglasses, sun hats, and bright bikinis! Pick your favorite pair of shorts for a day of Frisbee and frozen yogurt in the sunshine.

Happy sewing!

    i love the shorts. I think the ones with the buttons give me a good idea of what to do with the stripped fabric I saw.

    This gives me some ideas for board shorts! Cool. In some Supplex or Microsuade. Thank you Burda for making shorts that I can bend over in :-) (Higher waist).

      I am SO glad that high waists are still in. Make my short legs look longer :)
