Hepburn Shorts

Hey guys! I recently went on a little vacation to Mexico, and I made myself some linen shorts to wear for the beach. (And for summer in general, I have a feeling we will be spending lots of time at the pool this year).

The pattern I used is called the Hepburn Shorts by Pattern Emporium.

I used a linen fabric in a fun tropical print I found at Hancock Fabrics. (They are currently going out of business, if you’re lucky you can find some on sale!). I went to my local store over the weekend and they still had some of this print left in stock, and for a great price!

These shorts were very quick to put together, and I had a lot of fun making them too. The fit is great! I didn’t have to adjust the pattern at all. I did the elastic waistband option with pockets for a more casual, beachy look.

Pattern Emporium does a GREAT job at walking you through each step. They have great photos they took for each step, and different links that send you to different parts of the instructions making everything quick and easy to navigate. This is a great beginner-intermediate pattern.

Happy Summer!
