These cozy shorties are the perfect summer to fall transition. They're great for lounging and also fitting for a casual setting. These shorts have been tried and tested from size XXS-5XL. Pair it with your favorite tee, hoodie, or whatever your favorite top may be! I suggest using a structured knit such as french terry for the shorts and if possible a thinner knit (or woven would work) for the pockets as it can get a little bulky in that area.
With adults sizing varying even more than children, please pay close attention to size chart. Mixing sizes can seem a little intimidating but if you go off of the chart and adjust the rise/length as needed you will be good to go! I also highly suggest making a muslin (a practice with cheaper fabric) before cutting into your pretty fabric.

What kind of machine do I need to sew your patterns? A sewing machine is a must. If you are really wanting to get into making clothing though, I HIGHLY suggest getting a serger. Sergers make everything easier and cleaner. They also sew with knits a lot better than regular sewing machines!
I also own a coverstitch machine which has been a game changer. It's definitely not necessary but it is an amazing machine to have if you want your clothes to have a professional finish.
Can I sell clothes I make from your patterns? Yes, as long as you are the one sewing the clothes (you may not outsource to a manufacturer or otherwise mass produce the clothes). We love seeing our designs come to life!
Interested in outsourcing or manufacturing? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We love to see your work and we appreciate when you tag #lowlandkids :)
Can I share patterns I buy? No. We spend a lot of time and effort on each of our patterns and instructions. If people are interested in using Lowland Kids patterns you've acquired, please direct them to our website.
How Do I know what size to print? Once you download the pattern, open up the instructions and there is a sizing chart that will help you decide which size to print! If your kiddo is in between sizes you can always take the width of one size and length of another.
Can a beginner sew your patterns? Yes! We have patterns for beginners and experienced sewists alike. In the description of each pattern there will be a level of difficulty and it's up to you to decide!
Do you support Layers? YES! Each pattern has layers incorporated so you can just deselect any sizes you don't want to print!
