    We love these!

    This pattern is so easy to make. (It is akin to the ladies Coastal Cuff shorts, which I have made many of) Very quick to come together. Bub loves them, so his summer wardrobe will consist of many Scout shorts.

    Scout Shorts with added pocket

    With trademark easy to follow instructions, this pattern was really fun and quick to make. My daughter wanted a pair of long cargo shorts, which were really difficult to find for sale, so I added a box pocket from the fishervest trailblazer add-on. She wears them all the time, asking for another pair. Thank you!

    Fast and easy!

    Amazing pattern. So fast and easy to make. I have now made several pairs for my nephews and they love them.

    Just what I wanted

    Perfect woven pants/shorts. I skipped the pockets to try out the fit on my first pair but they are perfect so I plan to make many more. I love the below-the knee length for summer.

    Great pattern!

    This pattern was for my 9-year-old to make for the county fair this year. It was very straightforward and simple and with my assistance he was able to make these. I really liked the external pocket, and I felt it was easier for him to sew together also. We will definitely be using this pattern again.

    Comfy shorts

    The Coastal Shorts are the most comfy shorts I have ever worn. Made in linen/viscose blend. Sized down 2 sizes and added 3” to the leg. My waist is small for hips so I’m still a bit unsure about the amount of fabric gathered at the waist. But I’ve lived in these since I made them. Made several pairs of Scout Shorts for our granddaughter too. She regularly picks them out to wear. Definitely recommend.

    Love love love these!

    I’ve tried so many different patterns for shorts & pants that would go over my son’s cloth bum and none have worked without a LOT of modifications. This pattern just works. They look great on and the instructions and support for measuring etc are excellent. I’ve made 3 pairs now and will be making more for our trip around Europe.

    perfect fit, perfect pants

    I love the fit of these. They're roomy enough to play and explore in, but not too wide. The pockets are the perfect size for collecting treasures. They came together quickly and easily with the help of great instructions.

    Beautiful shorts

    This pattern is fabulous and so joyous to put together. I particularly like the waistband attachment because of the neat finish it gives. I highly recommend.

    Great, easy sew

    The pattern was fantastic, I love the ability to print a single size and the instructions were easy to follow. I loved the shorts I made for my three year old nephew and plan to make more.
