Linen Shorts from a FREE Trouser Pattern

Finding a good fitting pattern isn’t always easy but finding a good fitting ready-to-wear version is even more challenging. The FREE wide leg trouser pattern is available to use to create the shorts pattern. You can add some adjustments to the pockets to better suit your choice of fabric and style.

What you'll need:

  • Sewing machine
  • Overlocker
  • Button-hole foot (I used #3A)
  • Zipper Foot #4
  • Optional: Blind Hem foot #5
  • Medium to heavy weight woven fabric (cotton twill, linen, corduroy)
    Approximately 1m – 2m
    (Quantity dependent on your altered pattern & size)
  • Optional: 40cm lightweight woven fabric for Pockets
  • 3-4 Threads to match fabric
  • 1 x 2.4 cm Button
  • 18cm trouser or dress zip
    (don’t worry if you only have access to a longer zip, it will be shortened when assembling the fly)
  • Optional: 30cm Mid weight iron on Fusing/Vilene
  • Ruler, Tape & Paper Scissors
