This is an CONFIDENT BEGINNER level pattern. It is fiddly rather than complicated.

This is a great shorts pattern, the cut is really flattering. My girls love them and I’ve made 8+ pairs already 😂😂
I found the instructions adequate, but I use instructions minimally anymore.

Made this for my granddaughters Christmas dress this year as it was a little different. The fit was great and she loved the twirl factor.

I absolutely love this pattern! I am a complete beginner and this is the first thing I have sewn. The instructions are so easy to follow - I just had to look up a couple of terms. My stitching is not great but despite that it looks fantastic and is much better quality than the nappy purses I’ve bought in the past.
