The easy-sew, easy-fit, easy-wear Barton Shorts are summer's best friend! A drawer full of these wouldn't be too many. Beat the heat - throw them on over a swimsuit at the beach, or to go for a jog, or for playing with kids in the backyard. You can even make some as the perfect sleep shorts.
Barton has a straight hemmed view and a curved hem version for lace trim or bias tape finishing. Both styles have separate pattern pieces for 3" and 5" finished inseams.
And pockets. Because of course pockets!
Women's XXS-3X (hips 33-55")

This is a PDF Sewing pattern - you will only receive links to download the pattern to print at home. Nothing will be mailed to you unless you choose to add a large format print, in which case a 36 inch wide sheet with the pattern pieces printed on it will be shipped to you; you will still need to refer to the PDF for the instructions.
