For today I have prepared info about another new pattern - our pattern for women's short shorts / Bermuda shorts HAWAII. The pattern for women’s shorts HAWAII is constructed in a professional program for clothing pattern development and it is available in sizes 32–46. You can use this pattern to sew two variants of shorts - short shorts & Bermuda shorts. Both variants are marked on the pattern pieces.
As I said, the pattern includes pieces for two length variants. The pattern is designed with women's curves in mind, which is why the shorts (Bermudas) are fastened with a zipper and have a rigid waistline. If the waistline was finished with an elastic band (as in the children's version), a large amount of fabric in the front would form unsightly bulges. Don't worry about sewing the fly, it's not as hard as it looks.
The shorts have two side pockets, you can sew them almost invisible, or on the contrary, use a contrasting fabric and make the pocket openings deeper.
This pattern accentuates the femininity of the figure, visually slims the waist, and lengthens the legs. :)

You can get this pattern as part of a pattern set along with the pattern for children’s shorts HAWAII:
In addition to the fabric, you will also need an 18-20 cm / 7”–7 7/8” long zipper.
You will receive information about the required amount of material together with the pattern.
1. Leisure shorts
I recommend using somewhat strong (but soft) fabrics. American cotton works great. I used it to sew Bermuda shorts for myself and short shorts for Terulka. You can get this fabric in the Dumlatek.cz store:
- Pink cotton: Cotton canvas Michael Miller: Plume – You´re so vine
2. Sports shorts
You can use micropeach to sew children's sports shorts. This material is offered for example by Unuodesign.cz store:
You can also use a light softshell:
And pants softshell:
- 2x front piece
- 2x back piece
- 1x zipper overlap
- 4x pocket piece
- 1x waistband
The procedure is the same as for the children's version of the shorts, with the only difference that you have to sew a fly after the pockets.
You can learn how to sew a fly here:
After sewing the fly, continue with the side and instep seams.
Then sew the waistband.
Have a nice day!
