Great pattern. Easy to follow. A little big for my kiddos, so I will shrink it in a little on the next set. I also added a second pocket, b/c my little boy LOVES pockets.

Have made several for my son and for gifts for others in about 4 different sizes. This is a great pattern that produces attractive and functional shorts in very little time. My picky boy loves how they look and feel.
