Well it had to be done - with all the love for our Kimmy Shorts, we've made these super happy, comfy pants!
They are the most lovely relaxed style, but with clean form and tailoring so you still look and feel stylish. Perfect for lounging around in the holidays, going for picnics and walks, beach and bush visits or pop on a some bright accessories and sandals for a cute outfit while you catch up for drinks and dinners with friends and family.
The wide leg won't cling to your thighs and the lovely soft elastic waist sits at the natural waist, without being cinched or bunchy. The ankle length is very versatile with any style of shoe and suits various heights. There's generous pockets in the side seams too!
Made from a variety of vintage fabrics, these amazing cheerful patterns are so much fun! There's lots of colours to inspire interesting accessories and make up or keep it simple with a plain tee or singlet. Our Cami or Kite Tops make a great match too.
As always, we have taken much care to finesse the design with a professional Patternmaker for the ultimate in flattering form and wearability.

Please get in touch with any questions, we are always happy to help.
To check your size, lay flat something similar you have at home and run the tape measure across it. These are dimensions of the garment, not the body.
Remember the waistband is elastic so there's some flexibility with sizing. It is very soft and stretchy, not stiff at all. The waist measurement is of the shorts as they are, not pulled open to their widest point.
The hip measurement has been taken straight across from the base of the pockets to consider where most women are widest at their bottom and thighs.
The length measurement is taken the front of the shorts so that you get a sense of where they finish on the legs. However the back of the shorts are actually deeper to allow room for your bottom even though they appear to be equal in length once you have them on.
