Whew! Why not outfit all the people in your family with the family bundle of swim shorts?
These patterns are woven shorts patterns intended for microfiber (“board short”) material.
The Women’s Boardshorts pattern includes:
- Sizes 0 – 24 (see the last image for a size chart)
- Relaxed fit with a low rise and a back yoke to help mold to your size
- Velcro fly
- 4 inseam lengths: 2″, 5″, 7″, and 9.5″
- Comprehensive fitting guide. Since this is for wovens, I have to classify this as an intermediate pattern. You should expect to do some personal fitting. There are pictures and drawings to help you figure out which alterations are best for your personal fit issues.
- Optional cargo pocket in two sizes
- Leg openings can be hemmed or finished with binding
The Men’s Swim Trunks pattern includes:
- Relaxed Fit Shorts
- Mesh Liner
- Hand Pockets
- Cargo Pocket with Flap
- Elastic Waistband
The Kids’ Swim Trunks pattern includes:
- Medium rise – this will hit about 1.5″ below the child’s navel
- On-seam hand pockets
- Two lengths – the shorts will hit right at the knees or a few inches above the knees
