Looking for an easy shorts sewing pattern with an added option for culottes? You have come to the right place!

The Cherry Culottes and Shorts are a simple and incredibly comfortable, loose pair of pants featuring inseam pockets and back patch pockets. Also you can opt for the long version which lays right above the ankle or the shorts, above the knee, although you can of course alter the length to your desire in both cases.

In addition, the fit is very easy to achieve thanks to its elasticated waistband. Yes! You’ve heard right. For this, you just need to create a tunnel to pass your elastic through, try your culottes or shorts on and cut to your desired length.

To sum up, with lots of detailed instructions, technical drawings and tips to get the best results, the Cherry Culottes and Shorts sewing pattern will become a staple, with a twist, in your handmade wardrobe.
