I’m bringing you another new pattern I had the opportunity to test, The Avalon Shorts by Peach Patterns. This pattern is a simple & chic pair of easy-to-wear, pull-on shorts designed for woven (non-stretch) fabrics. They feature side pockets with facing, elastic casing waist and optional decorative ties. The Avalon Shorts also offers 2 alternative hem options.
These short are a super quick and easy sew. I think I was done in around two hours from cut to hem. I love the fact they are loose and comfy. This is now my go-to pattern for summer shorts. I can’t wait for weather to warm up here in the US so I can wear these to the beach or just around town.
These shorts can go with any top, like the black basic tee I’ve paired them with, but they were designed to be paired with the Leilani Top (above) to mimic the very popular girls Leilani Romper. Thankfully Peach Patterns has offered a Leilani Top and Avalon Shorts pattern bundle for a reduced price (20% OFF)!
Grab these shorts if,
- you’ve been waiting on the ladies Leilani romper
- you’re in need of a easy pull on shorts pattern
- you’ve been looking for an easy started project
