Pattern Description:

These women's shortie shorts have an elastic waistline casing and drawstrings at the side. Tweaked from an authentic vintage pattern from my personal collection, these are perfect for summer! They are a late 1970s/early 1980s style that you can whip up with less than a yard of fabric. This listing is for a PDF digital download, not a physical pattern or the finished product.
