The Zero Waste Bow Shorts pattern is a basic elastic waist, woven fabric shorts pattern that can be easily lengthened to suit your style. The pockets and waist finish options on this pattern are also interchangeable with those of the Thread Faction ZW Wide Leg Pants Pattern also available from our store.
- Super easy to sew with step-by-step instructions with pictures.
- The whole pattern is made from a simple rectangle of fabric with no leftovers.
- You can choose to include the tie at the waist or not.
- Instructions also included to help you with fit.
Sizes: The pattern starts at a size 2 and goes up to a size 14 (kids sizing).
File types: A4/Letter size PDF (for home printers), A0 size PDF (for printshops), and a projector file too.
Difficulty: Basic Skills
All the patterns in the Zero Waste Collection are cut from a single rectangular piece (or pieces if there is a lining) of fabric with no waste. This leaves you with only usable rectangular remnants the size of which depends the size of the pattern and the width of the original fabric.
We know that this type of pattern cutting is not a 'fix all' for waste in the sewing world, but it is our step in the right direction and we really hope you enjoy the patterns as much as we do.
