Lovely pleated + lined shorts for those days you feel a little bit dressy and a lot a bit sassy. They have a fly front, a pant-hook waist closure, a regular rise and sideseam pockets.

    I’m having so much trouble with this pattern there’s been a lot of seam ripping haha. But right now I’m confused by the directions. They state to right sides together stitch front and backs together at side seams. So I did that as the diagram indicated all along the side but realized I just succeeded in seaming in my pockets. How should this be done? Should I just be sewing between the clipped notches? It seems that’s the case but the diagram and instructions don’t mention the pockets.

      Thanks for catching that!

      The shorts use a 5" closed end zipper. I’ve updated the pattern for all future peeps.

      Hope you enjoy them!
