This listing is for the PDF PATTERN & TUTORIAL for making the Scuttle Shorts. You will be able to INSTANT DOWNLOAD the pattern after purchase.

The Scuttle Shorts are a low rise knit short with two length options. Sew them plain or with colour blocking and a folded pocket.


This is an CONFIDENT BEGINNER level pattern.

The Scuttle Shorts feature:
- size 3-12 years (They do not accomodate a diaper/nappy)
- suitable for boys or girls
- shorty or jamaica length
- low rise shorts with elastic waistband
- plain or panelled front with folded pockets (please note the pockets on the shorty length are more decorative than functional. Small items can be put in them, but they are a little snug for the whole hand.)
- plain or split waistband
- optional faux waist tie
- suitable for stable knit fabrics
- measurements in metric and imperial (ie cm and inches)

This PDF includes a TUTORIAL with photos to step you through making the shorts & PATTERN PIECES which can be printed out on a regular home printer (with scaling set to none - prints fine on Australian, UK, USA and other international home printers). Layers are included with the pattern so you can print just the sizes you need. For your convenience an A0 file (for copy shop printing) is also included.

If you have a small scale sew from home business you are able to sell shorts made from this pattern. Where appropriate please include, “made with an AinsleeFOX pattern” or similar statement, when selling shorts made from this PDF. This PDF itself is covered by copyright and is for your use only.

I am happy to answer any questions you might have about this PDF both before and after purchase. I live in Australia so any delays in replies will be due to differences in time zones.

This listing is for the PDF only you will not be sent complete shorts or a paper pattern.
