Whilst I may not admit to having an addictive personality, I will admit to becoming obsessive when it comes to new sewing patterns. The latest free pattern I am currently obsessing over is the Friday Sports Shorts by Friday Pattern Company A free pattern no less, it is absolutely perfect. However, although I no longer class myself as a sporty person, I do love a good leisurewear garment.
The Friday Sports Shorts.
Friday Pattern Company patterns are fast becoming my ‘go to’ patterns, well cut, and always on trend without being ‘trendy’ if you get my meaning? My first make was the best selling ‘Wilder Gown’ dress back in 2019. Closely followed by a wilder gown top. Next on my list will be the Ilford Jacket for either the old man or the boy! I digress, back to those Friday sports shorts . . .
Why (In My opinion) They are a fabulous pattern.
In my opinion, these shorts can do no wrong, they use less than 1m of fabric, I used all scrappy leftover pieces, they are a fast sew, a pair can be made in an afternoon ( I made two in four hours) AND they are very, very comfy, mine are all presently being worn as PJ bottoms. simply pair with an old washed out soft cotton t-shirt and you are in pyjama heaven . . .
Sports Shorts The Details.
- Sizing: from xs all the way up to 7xxl very inclusive!
- True to size, I made no alterations
- Fabric: less than a metre depending on widths great for using up scraps.
- Available as a free PDF only.
- Very easy and quick to sew.
- Making bias binding or optionally purchase ready made.
- Neatly attaching bias binding, to finish raw edges.
These include making many more pairs, these shorts would make wonderful gifts. I am planning my next couple of makes in knitted jersey fabric, of which i have many many suitable scraps. Watch this space.
