Women’s Boardshorts

(2 customer reviews)


Sometimes I like having a cover up that I can also wear as a standalone item.  Boardshorts are perfect for my active lifestyle.  Whether I’m tubing, chasing kids, walking on the beach, or playing volleyball, I can get up and MOVE in these shorts!

The Women’s Boardshorts are a woven shorts pattern intended for microfiber (“boardshort”) material.  They have a back yoke to help mold the fabric to your body’s contours.  These are a relaxed fit pattern with a low rise.

The Women’s Boardshorts pattern includes:

  • Sizes 0 – 24 (see the last image for a size chart)
  • 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

As always…

    Love these shorts! Excellent pattern with greats tips to get the perfect fit for your body. I used snaps instead of grommets, and they worked perfectly. THANK YOU, 5oo4, for a great pattern for summer shorts – both in the water and out!
